Eric Runge authored an article, “Mass. Clean Energy Standard Reshapes the Energy Landscape," for Law360. As the article discusses, with its new Clean Energy Standard, "Massachusetts continues to be among those states leading the charge to achieve ambitious clean and renewable energy goals and change the energy landscape." The article further illustrates how Massachusetts' policies have created major new energy investment opportunities and impacted the wholesale power markets. Increasingly, those working in the electricity sector need to be aware of state energy policies, their connection to environmental policies, their impact on wholesale power markets and transmission, and the federal/state jurisdictional issues raised by state policies affecting the wholesale electricity world," Runge writes in the article. "This is especially true in areas such as New England, New York and California, where states are actively promoting energy policies that are transforming the energy landscape to include large amounts of new clean/renewable energy."
