On Thursday, March 13, 2014, from 1:00 - 2:00 pm (EST), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership (GPP) hosted a webinar entitled "Long-term Green Power Procurements from Wind Projects."
In today's green power market, many forward-thinking organizations are looking to long-term procurements from wind power projects to meet their renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals. Large companies and corporations, as well as governments and institutes of higher education, are interested in working with utilities and green power suppliers to meet their electricity needs, reduce their carbon footprints, hedge against future electricity price increases, and support the development of new clean energy resources in the U.S. Long-term commitments also help to guarantee a renewable energy project's financial viability.
This webinar examined various procurement options, the steps involved in making a long-term commitment, challenges, and other considerations. We also heard from Renewable Choice Energy, a renewable energy provider, on what's involved in making long-term procurements a reality.
