Philadelphia Green Power Boot Camp
Colleges and universities are cutting energy costs and minimizing energy price risk, while mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, by using power purchase agreements (PPAs) to source renewable energy. However, PPAs are still relatively new and unfamiliar and the renewable energy market can be opaque and confusing.
As part of the Green Gigawatt Partnership, which aims to catalyze at least one gigawatt of new renewable energy in higher education by 2020, AASHE and PERC are hosting two workshops to help participants develop an integrated renewable energy strategy, including both on-site and off-site approaches. PERC Members should consider joining us at one of these no-cost training sessions.
The workshops will include:
- Overview of trends in renewable energy
- Primer on power purchase agreements
- Case studies from higher education
- Ways to manage GHG accounting associated with PPAs
- Opportunity to join AASHE's Green Gigawatt Partnership, which provides no-cost assistance that will get you all the way to an executed PPA
Each of these workshops is offered free to PERC Members, courtesy of PERC Silver Annual Sponsor, Altenex.
