Repowering the Western Economy

Repowering the Western Economy is a convening that facilitates a dialogue between western states and stakeholders. This is a continuation of the 13-state Western dialogue CNEE convened on clean energy issues in response to the Clean Power Plan. The changes underway in the electricity sector will not end just because the CPP is being withdrawn by EPA. In fact, with no federal mandate, and with utilities and commissions now in the driver’s seat, this initiative is more important than ever as they plan and make 20 to 30-year investment decisions in the face of tremendous uncertainty.

The West needs a new approach to these issues, one that is responsive both to the changes at the federal level and to the unique issues and opportunities associated with the transition to an expanded, low-carbon Western grid that is already underway.

Please review “Repowering the Western Economy – A 2040 Roadmap” (published March 31, 2017 by Center for the New Energy Economy) for more information.
