2014 Policy Forum
Energy Policy Forum: Evolving Policy to Keep Pace With Market Innovation
March 28, 2014
U.S. renewable energy and fossil fuel energy markets are
rapidly evolving as industry innovates and deploys new technology, paving the
way for a rebirth of U.S. energy production leadership. The U.S.
renewable energy industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of the US
economy presenting important economic and environmental security
opportunities. Since 2008, surpassing all other sources, more than
37% of all new U.S. power capacity has been generated by renewable energy
resources. Renewable fuels and electric vehicles are enabling customer
choice and breaking our century long dependence on a single fuel
source. A combination of private sector investment and innovation,
as well as, federal and state policy has driven substantial renewable energy cost
reduction, scale-up and an expanding value chain throughout the country.
As these power and transportation markets develop, policy
needs to evolve to keep up with the pace of and foster even greater
innovation. Industry needs a consistent and long-term policy to optimize
investment, development and use of the nation’s abundant and cost-competitive
renewable energy resources. ACORE’s National Renewable Energy
Policy Forum will convene the renewable energy industry to chart the path forward
for pro-growth, constructive and bipartisan renewable energy policy that will
foster additional private sector investment and innovation.
Join renewable energy leaders and policy makers from Capitol
Hill and across the country as we assess renewable energy market growth and
make the case for a coherent, long-term and consistent federal policy framework
to accelerate the transformation of our nation’s energy sector.
