Regulatory Assistance Project – Building a Next-Generation Mix of Energy Resources: Procurement Best Practices
Regulators have been thinking for decades about how competition can support an energy resource mix that best aligns with the public interest. Now, the landscape for competitive utility procurement is changing in many ways. Lower-cost renewables, increased electrification, decarbonization targets, and equity and affordability goals all present new opportunities — and challenges — for regulators and utilities.
Join us for an interactive webinar in which we’ll discuss a “next-generation” approach to utility procurement and evolving best practices, based in part on recent work done by RAP and RMI. The webinar will offer recommendations on how to design clear rules for procurement processes that consider all available resources, are aligned with both utility and public-policy objectives, and result in outcomes that offer the “least regrets.”
