Energy: Past Projects
U.S. Offshore Wind Leadership Summit
Facing the potential and expected growth of offshore wind energy development, the Keystone Policy Center partnered with the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative for Offshore Wind to host the U.S. Offshore Wind Leadership Summit in March 2015. The summit, attended by U.S. offshore wind try leaders and their European counterparts, discussed the challenges and opportunities associated with new offshore wind technologies, growing public and private investments in offshore wind, and other emerging issues.
The Keystone Policy Center’s work was instrumental in helping the University of Delaware’s Special Initiative for Offshore Wind’s team to define the agenda; conduct stakeholder interviews; and facilitate the discussions over the course of the two-day meeting. The summit resulted in a platform of critical, near-term strategic actions that the participants agreed to carry forward.
EPA State Climate and Energy Technical Forum
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Partnership Policy Forum
Department of Energy/NREL Collaborative Energy Analysis Workshop
- The improvement of deployment partnerships between industry and government
- Better representation of energy technologies and demand response in energy analysis tools
- Development of better program impact evaluation tools
- Development of better policy analysis tools
- Integration of information at the state and federal levels
Keystone also facilitated a session to explore longer-term energy analysis needs for consideration at future workshops.
Advancing Energy Innovation
With the collaborative support of advisers across the energy policy and technology spectrum, and with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, the Advancing Energy Innovation Regional Dialogues fostered discussions on these issues at the state and regional level. Keystone’s work helped participants design collaborative win-win strategies that encourage innovation, productivity, and competition, while ensuring that customer and supplier benefits and risks are appropriately balanced and shared.
