Presented by Heidi Bishop Ratz and Lori Bird, on behalf of the Special Clean Power Council (CPC). The CPC was established as a two-year effort between select U.S. electric utilities covering 33 states and their large-scale corporate customers to drive innovation in the decarbonization of the utility sector. Members work collaboratively on mutually beneficial solutions that can be embraced by state regulators and policymakers. From these efforts, the CPC has focused on identifying regional best practices for simplifying access to low-cost, clean energy options while conveying overall grid benefits, including alignment on utility asset planning.
