SREC Markets: Status and Trends

Wednesday, January 18, 2012 1:00pm - 2:30pm EST  
Host: U.S. Department of Energy

This webinar will review the status and trends in SREC markets, building off of the recent NREL paper, Solar Renewable Energy Certificate Markets: Status and Trends.

This paper examines experience in solar renewable energy certificate (SREC) markets in the United States. It describes how SREC markets function--key policy design provisions, eligible technologies, state and regional eligibility rules, solar alternative compliance payments, measurement and verification methods, long-term contracting provisions, and rate caps. It also examines the trends of SREC markets--trading volumes, sourcing trends, trends in the size of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems driven by these markets, and trends in price and compliance. Throughout, the paper explores key issues and challenges facing SREC markets and attempts by policymakers to address some of these market barriers.

Speakers will include:
Lori Bird (National Renewable Energy Lab)
Brad Bowery (SRECTrade)
Michael Judge (Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources)
Michael Winka (Director Office of Clean Energy NJBPU)
