Many local governments and large-scale energy customers have set ambitious clean energy goals. Yet, most of these aspirations will not be realized without a rapid deployment of clean energy resources onto the electricity grid. While wholesale electricity markets contain many features that provide an enabling environment for integrating clean energy resources into the grid, their evolving rules and practices can affect the achievement of customer clean energy goals.

Join World Resources Institute on March 31 for a webinar on the opportunities and barriers to advancing local clean energy goals within wholesale market structures – and how customers can engage on these issues. The event will highlight findings from new WRI research on the barriers to and opportunities for solar energy, and expand upon other clean energy resources within wholesale markets. It will also feature a panel where local government leaders and other large-scale energy customers will discuss current barriers, opportunities, and the importance of engaging on wholesale market issues.
