The Relationship Between Voluntary and Compliance Renewable Energy Markets
Publisher: Pratt's Energy Law Report
July 6, 2021
Lynn Fountain co-authored the article, "The Relationship Between Voluntary and Compliance Renewable Energy Markets," for Pratt's Energy Law Report with former partner and firm client Flossie Davis, Assistant General Counsel with Exelon Corporation. The topic is one that energy suppliers and consumers have been grappling with for some time. As more companies adopt "net zero" and "100% renewable" goals, states set increasingly aggressive greenhouse gas reduction targets and RPS requirements, and the federal government shows signs of getting into the fray, the authors examine the increasingly important question of how voluntary commitments and claims interact with mandatory requirements – and where the gaps remain.
