Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has just released its annual report reviewing key trends in state renewables portfolio standards (RPS). The report, U.S. Renewables Portfolio Standards: 2017 Annual Status Report, is available for download. Berkeley Lab’s announcement of the report notes: “This annual update, which is published in slide-deck form, builds on Berkeley Lab’s ongoing efforts to track and analyze state RPS policies. Among other topics, it describes recent legislative revisions, key policy design features, past and projected impacts on renewables development, compliance trends, and costs. The 2017 edition of the report presents historical data through year-end 2016 and projections through 2030.”

Galen Barbose, lead author for the report, presented the key findings in a webinar for the RPS Collaborative.
