Two Markets, Overlapping Goals: Exploring The Intersection Of RPS And Voluntary Markets For Renewable Energy In The U.S.

This paper, produced for the RPS Collaborative, a project of the Clean Energy States Alliance (CESA), explores interactions between RPS and voluntary markets for renewable energy in the U.S. and outlines principles for supporting continued growth of both markets. These principles preserve the ability of each market to make separate and incremental contributions to renewable energy, uphold accurate accounting, reduce complexity, and increase participation.
