Renewable energy remains a top priority for New York state. One of the tools to help bring about that transition: Renewable Energy Credits, or RECs. RECs provide a mechanism that developers can use to finance wind and solar generation and transmission projects, as well as to meet environmental commitments.
Energy Industry Team Partner Michelle Piasecki will join a virtual panel discussion next week organized by the Business Council of New York State and NYSERDA aimed at explaining RECs and how they function.
Michelle and co-panelists will discuss how participation in the market for RECs can help speed the development of renewable energy projects. They will also discuss the legal and regulatory issues involved in creating, trading and using RECs for business. RECs also play a role in compliance as state and local governments adopt decarbonization mandates.
Michelle will be joined by Assistant Director Dave Crudele and Program Manager Mark Gundrum of the Large Scale Renewables program at NYSERDA, and Senior Vice President of Policy Zach Steinberg of the Real Estate Board of New York. Click to learn more: Renewable Energy Credit Markets Webinar.
