The Environmental and Energy Study Institute sponsored a Congressional briefing on two federal legislative proposals: the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) and the System Benefits Fund (SBF). These complementary energy policies are designed to help level the playing field and encourage investments in new renewable energy resources and energy efficiency technologies. Developing clean energy technologies stabilizes and diversifies the nation's domestic energy resources, improves electricity reliability, decreases pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and promotes rural economic development. A federal Renewable Portfolio Standard and System Benefits Fund provide significant opportunities for the nation to move toward a more sustainable and secure energy future fueled by abundant, domestic, and clean energy sources, as well as fostering great gains that can be made through improved energy efficiency.
