Energy Economics Division

Welcome and Join Energy Economics Forum!

Energy efficiency and renewable energy won the least cost price prize and the most installed generation prize too. Winning the battle never ends. Big arrays, local community solar and microgrids can’t happen fast enough. The barriers and the opportunities require a big lift in all 50 states. Regional utilities may or may not be ready for massive changes we need to reduce carbon, methane, particulate matter and smog in our atmosphere. Let’s discuss equity, health, resilience, global manufacturing and the value of keep dollars circulating in our local communities.
