NMR contributed to a market conditions assessment of NYSERDA’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) Program. NMR led the assessment of the voluntary green power market, market potential and market barriers, an assessment of the market conditions of customer-sited distributed renewable generation systems, and contributed to the assessment of the steps New York State is taking to attract clean energy manufacturers, suppliers and qualified workforce to the state.
For several years, NMR has been evaluating the Connecticut Clean Energy Fund’s efforts. We have conducted annual surveys among Connecticut residents to gauge public awareness of and attitudes toward clean energy compared to those of residents from across the contiguous United States. In addition, NMR: 1) monitors and tracks enrollments in the Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control’s Clean Energy Option Program and other voluntary clean energy purchases, community participation in CCEF programs, and media coverage of CCEF and clean energy in Connecticut; 2) estimates energy consumed by participants in the Connecticut Clean Energy Option; and 3) produces monthly and semi-annual reports summarizing community participation, purchasing activity, energy consumed, and environmental benefits indicators.
