Description (excerpt):

As the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) marks its 15th anniversary, our mission to unite business, policy and finance to accelerate the transition to a renewable energy economy has never been more relevant or important. ACORE hosted its annual National Renewable Energy Policy Forum: Driving Growth in a New Policy Landscape on March 17, 2016 to identify how to best execute this mission while seismic developments in national and global policies are significantly reshaping the renewable energy marketplace.

The lineup of exceptional speakers from the public and private sectors addressed the challenges and opportunities of navigating today’s uncertain policy environment to help ensure continued growth and profitability across the renewable energy industry. Clean energy champions in Congress and the Administration expressed their continued support of renewable energy in keynote addresses, including Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), as well as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Acting Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation Janet McCabe, one of the key architects of the Clean Power Plan. Forum participants represented a wide range of constituencies in the renewable energy sector, including developers, financial institutions, corporate end-users, professional service providers, and allied non-profit groups, including the heads of the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), Tom Kiernan and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Rhone Resch.
