Regional Energy Policy - Clean Energy Procurement
New England, as a region, is looking to move towards a clean energy future. For example, Massachusetts called out for proposals for 1200 megawatts (MW) of clean energy and 1600 MW of offshore wind. Bids have been submitted for significant hydro, solar, and wind projects that, if accepted, will significantly alter New England's renewable energy landscape. This session examines a handful of approaches with generation and transmission footprints in Maine.
9:00 - 9:30 a.m.
Regional Energy Policy - The Role of DOE
Regional procurement and program decisions like the Massachusetts and multi-state clean-energy RFPs are driving electricity generation and transmission decisions in New England states and Eastern Canadian provinces. The DOE Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability is on hand to provide technical assistance to States and regions to inform their electricity policies, programs, laws, and regulations that facilitate electricity infrastructure investment needed to deliver clean, affordable, and reliable electricity to customers.
9:30 - 11:00 a.m.
