A national Clean Energy Standard (CES) is one option policymakers are considering to accelerate the decarbonization of the power sector to meet U.S. climate goals. A CES would increase the proportion of clean energy used to generate electricity by rewarding utilities that meet federal targets and penalizing those that fall short. Who would be the winners and losers under a national standard? How would fossil fuel producing states fare compared to states that have already moved to renewable sources like wind and solar? How would a federal standard work with the dozens of states that have already adopted renewable energy requirements? And how might a CES affect the electrification of other economic sectors, like transportation? ConservAmerica will explore these questions and more in a webinar August 17th starting at 10 am ET.
