EESI is delighted to be a supporting organization for the 2016 ACORE Renewable Energy Policy Forum, which is being held on Wednesday, March 16 and Thursday, March 17.

This year’s Renewable Energy Policy Forum takes place as seismic developments in national and global policies are reshaping the renewable energy marketplace. In December, Congress enacted a major new tax package offering long-sought stability to the wind and solar power industries. Just two weeks earlier, 129 nations at the COP21 U.N. climate meetings in Paris reached agreement on an unprecedented global effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Taken together, these developments are a source of immense promise for the future of renewable energy in the United States and around the world.

But important challenges remain. Other renewable technologies, including geothermal, hydro and biomass, secured a tax credit extension only through 2016, and will need quick action from Congress to keep their incentives in place. Meanwhile, the Clean Power Plan, with its strong support for renewable energy technologies, is being held up by legal challenges (the Supreme Court has temporarily blocked the Plan's implentation until the case is resolved).

This year’s forum will provide in-depth analyses of these and other important policies and address the critical challenges that lie ahead, including the implementation of the Clean Power Plan, the achievement of the nation’s COP21 commitments, and the policy signals and business models needed to drive continued market evolution and expansion.
