NASEO-ASERTTI Renewable Energy Committee
NASEO / ASERTTI’s Renewable Energy Committee provides education and
outreach to the State Energy Offices in support of the integration of
renewable energy onto the electric grid. NASEO and ASERTTI initiated a
joint Renewable Energy Committee to focus on these issues, as well as
technology advancement, state and federal policy, and technical assistance,
and to facilitate coordination among states and renewable energy
organizations. NASEO and ASERTTI will support their member state
offices, which are uniquely positioned to catalyze state-led economic
development efforts and to effectively meet energy security, fuels
diversification, and environmental goals through effective commercialization
and deployment of renewable energy.
NASEO is uniquely positioned to assist the states in the transition to a
future in which significant amounts of renewable energy, both grid connected
and customer-sited, become commonplace. Together with ASERTTI, which
represents major state chartered energy technology institutions, a joint
committee can effectively help promote and manage large-scale deployment of
renewable energy in support of broad national objectives of the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE), the clean tech industry, utilities, and partner
organizations. The purposes of this committee are to identify issues worthy
of consideration, develop strategies to enhance the capabilities and success
of existing efforts among states, DOE and the national labs, identify and
share suitable case studies and best practices, provide relevant information
to membership, and working with organizations like the DOE, identify the
means to address barriers to commercialization and deployment.
The joint NASEO-ASERTTI renewable energy committee will organize forums,
convene discussion groups and workshops to share ideas and develop
implementation strategies for renewable power and fuels. The committee will
utilize ideas from both domestic sources and international experience. As
resources permit, the committee will commission analyses and seek technical
assistance from partner agencies to address specific issues.
