This webinar focuses on the concepts described in a new paper, Use of “Third-Party Entities” for State and Federal Implementation of the Clean Power Plan: Issues and Options, written by attorneys at the law firm Van Ness Feldman. The paper outlines ways state regulators and EPA can outsource some CPP implementation functions in order to leverage existing expertise while reducing administrative burden and cost.
Working with Microsoft’s Azure machine learning platform, AEE has applied the science of predictive analytics to a rich data set of federal and state legislation on our PowerSuite platform. The result is a forecast that predicts the likelihood that a bill will be enacted that automatically adapts from introduction of bill to the end of the legislative process. In 2016, PowerSuite correctly predicted the outcome of legislation with 87% accuracy.
This webinar shows you how to focus your efforts on bills with the greatest chances of success, as well as improving the prospects of bills that face an uphill climb.
In 2015, the U.S. advanced energy industry grew to $200 billion, up 29% since 2011. This is a result of ever-improving economics and performance. As we define it, advanced energy includes renewables, demand response, energy storage, building efficiency, advanced controls and metering, and a variety of grid technologies.
Unfortunately, there are policy barriers that stand in the way of advanced energy becoming the nation’s dominant source of electric power. This webinar takes a look at the rules of wholesale electricity markets that prevent advanced energy technologies from competing on cost and performance.
PowerSuite is the only tool you’ll need for complete coverage of energy regulatory and legislative information. During this webinar you'll learn how to use PowerSuite for: government affairs activities, policy strategy, business development, and competitive analysis. Also, you'll learn how to uncover (FERC) risks and opportunities.
In this webinar we will take a look at utility business models and explore the fact that one size does not fit all.

Has your company made a commitment to use renewable energy? This webinar covers several transaction structures to take corporate buyers "beyond RECs", and looks at the role state policy plays in creating opportunities for — or barriers to — unleashing significant additional market demand for renewables.
In this webinar our team of Capitol insiders discuss what took place during the 2015 legislative session and what it means for advanced energy in California. Topics include:
- Allocation of Cap & Trade Revenues
- Senate Climate package: SB 32 and SB 350 and related Assembly-authored bills
Earlier this year, the North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) issued an “initial reliability review” in which it identified elements of EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan (CPP) that could lead to reliability concerns. One of the issues identified by NERC was the challenge of integrating variable renewable resources, such as wind and solar, into the power system at the levels contemplated by the CPP. When one examines the data, it is clear that some geographic areas are already successfully managing the levels of renewable energy discussed in the context of the CPP.
This webinar explores how some grid operators are already managing the levels of renewable capacity considered in the CPP, and how they are preparing to manage significantly larger amounts in the future.
An increasing number of large electricity customers want to use direct purchases of renewable energy to meet their sustainability goals. This creates a significant new market opportunity for renewable energy companies, but in many states these willing buyers and sellers encounter barriers to transacting.
This webinar profiles the experiences of Microsoft and Walmart, two companies that have successfully procured renewable energy for their operations.
This webinar will present highlights from the third edition of AEE's annual tracking of growth in the U.S. and global markets for advanced energy products and services.
The AEN 2015 Market Report is the most comprehensive assessment of advanced energy revenue and market trends ever conducted. In this webinar you will learn about key findings in the market report and hear the perspectives of some of our member companies in the advanced energy industry.
The North American Electricity Reliability Corporation (NERC) issued a report in November that raised questions about the potential impact of EPA's Clean Power Plan (CPP) on the reliability of the electric system. In this technical review of the NERC report commissioned by the Advanced Energy Economy Institute (AEEI), the Brattle Group explores the technology, operational, and market options that will allow states and power system operators to meet CPP requirements without compromising reliability.
This webinar is for anyone interested in learning how advanced energy technologies can be utilized by grid operators to safeguard reliability as states modernize their electric power systems under the Clean Power Plan.
