Why You Should Call In

December's Paris climate negotiations will again focus the spotlight on renewable energy, but renewables may already have reached a tipping point. Dramatically falling prices for renewable power, together with growing demand from corporations seeking to reduce their climate footprint and public policies ranging from the Clean Power Plan to state renewable portfolio mandates are combining to drive a major shift in the nation's electric power sector towards renewable energy.

This ninety-minute, audio-only TeleBriefing will provide a comprehensive overview of Renewable Power Purchase Agreements (Renewable PPAs), including the key aspects of Renewable PPAs from the perspective of project developers, high-tech consumers, and pioneers in the most advanced forms of Renewable PPAs.
