Renewables Portfolio Standards Resources

LBNL's Electricity Markets and Policy Group tracks and analyzes state renewables portfolio standard (RPS) design and implementation experience on an ongoing basis, in order to inform the efforts of policy-makers, program administrators, and other industry stakeholders.
