With a new Administration focused as never before on climate, a changing Congress and the ongoing pandemic – it will be critical for renewable energy companies to understand the outlook for executive, regulatory and legislative action over the coming year. The ACORE Policy Forum will convene leaders from across government and the renewable energy industry for a deep dive on climate policy, grid advocacy, and their expectations for progress at the federal and state levels.
