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.
