Incorporating Wind Generation in Cap and Trade Programs

 

 

Incorporating Wind Generation in Cap and Trade Programs 

 

July 2006 - Cap and trade programs are increasingly being used to reduce emissions from electricity generation in the United States. However, while some states have included renewable generators such as wind in their cap and trade programs, there has been little participation among wind and other renewable energy generators in cap and trade programs to date. This report, co-authored by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the American Wind Energy Association, explores state policies that have included wind in cap and trade programs, the mechanisms by which wind generators could benefit from participation, and how wind generation can most effectively be included in these programs.
