NRS Attends ACORE 20th Anniversary Gala

& Policy Forum in D.C.

Members of the NRS Executive team attended the ACORE (American Council on Renewable Energy) Gala celebrating their 20th anniversary on March 23rd, followed by the annual Policy Forum the next day in Washington DC. It was the first time the organization held an in-person event since the start of the pandemic, and while there were plenty of jokes about remembering how to socialize and tie a necktie, it was wonderful to see and feel the excitement for the topic of the events as well. The keynote speakers and panelists included several senior industry professionals, FERC Commissioner, Willie Phillips; The Honorable Ron Wyden, Chairman, U.S. Senate Committee on Finance; the current EPA Administrator, Michael Regan; as well as two former EPA administrators, Carol Browner and Gina McCarthy (pictured above with Michael Regan).

The recurring themes at these events were centered on issues of supply chain (which at the time, we were still awaiting word from the US Commerce department regarding its investigation on solar panels from Southeast Asia), energy equity, the need for high voltage transmission builds, and the hope for congress to pass a suite of renewable tax incentives yet this spring as a part of a budget reconciliation bill. It's clear that the sense of urgency to pass these incentives is heightened by the clear need for the west to gain energy independence from countries like Russia, which has been the main reason energy prices have spiked more recently.  

The folks at ACORE are certainly doing their part to urge congress to act - 

and you should too!                                                                                                           NRS was represented by Jesse Hopkins-Hoel, CDO (left)

NAEMA: Solar + Wind Finance & Investment Summit - Recap

The NRS staff participated in the North America Energy Market Association Spring Conference in Austin, TX on April 19-21.  The team had an informative storage site facility tour of the Pflugerville BESS on the first day. On days two and three we shared innovative ideas on our projects in CO and NM with industry leaders and networked to build relationships for current and future business development opportunities.  Members of the Business Development team and other NRS Staff members had appointments to discuss various offtake opportunities. We look forward to growing and fostering these relationships as we build out our current portfolio of wind, solar, and storage.
