On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) hosted a webinar examining the state of the green power market within the United States.
This annual webinar focused primarily on the voluntary market, through which consumers and institutions voluntarily procure renewable energy for all or part of their electricity needs. The webinar reviewed:
- The various green power product options with information on their trends in green power purchasing
- The continued growth of new green power procurement options, including power purchase agreements (PPAs), community solar programs, and community choice aggregations
- Trends of GPP partners green power use and diversification
The presentations drew heavily on the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's recently published Status and Trends in the U.S. Voluntary Green Power Market (PDF) (60 pp, 3MB) as well as the Green Power Partnership's program data.
