Clean Energy States Alliance Receives

Solar Energy Innovation Network Award

 

CESA is partnering with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, five states, and the District of Columbia to identify locations for distributed energy resources that provide benefits to the grid.

Montpelier, VT – The Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA) was selected by the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to participate in a collaborative research effort to explore new ways solar energy can improve the affordability, reliability, and resiliency of the nation’s electric grid.

CESA will work with agencies in five states and the District of Columbia to identify locations for distributed energy resources (DER) that provide benefits to the grid. While CESA’s multistate initiative aims to help decision-makers identify high-value locations for DER development, each participating state has its own specific approach and aims under the project. The agencies CESA is partnering with on this initiative are:

  • Connecticut Green Bank
  • Office of the People’s Counsel for the District of Columbia
  • New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission – Sustainable Energy Division
  • Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources
  • Washington Department of Commerce – State Energy Office
  • Wisconsin Office of Energy Innovation
