EPA Green Power Partnership Webinar
EPA hosted a webinar on October 23 to answer basic questions about how green power retailers can retire allowances through the voluntary renewable energy set-aside (VRE) in many of states participating in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), and the importance of doing so for the green power market. State RGGI Administrators, Tracking System Representatives with APX, EPA officials, and representatives from the Center for Resource Solutions (CRS) provided information and answered questions. Speakers addressed:
- The eligibility criteria for retiring allowances
