Join NECA and our community of renewable energy developers, policymakers, financers, government officials, engineers, utility representatives, and other market participants at our virtual 2022 Renewable Energy Conference March 10!

Panel I will cover recent and anticipated offshore wind activity, such as the New York Bight lease auction results, prospects for coordinated transmission development in the US northeast, and collaborating on developing the region’s supply chain.

Panel II will focus on the necessary distributed generation (DG) policies to attain state policy goals, including greenhouse gas emissions mandates. This conversation will incorporate topics such as integrating batteries with renewables, incentive program adders and subtractors (carrot and stick approach to policy outcomes), ISO-NE rules that impact DG development, and what we as industry stakeholders can do to move the conversation and policies towards a carbon free future.

Agrivoltaics is a win-win for the solar and agriculture industries. Learn more from our keynote speaker about the vision that make Jack’s Solar Garden a reality.
