RADER Initiatives



The RADER Committee is proud to present the monthly Renewable Energy Seminar and Teleconference Series, which RADER co-sponsors in collaboration with the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE) and Bloomberg Renewable Energy Finance. These monthly seminars provide an opportunity to network and discuss the subject matter with renewable energy lawyers, federal and state policy makers, and business experts. We hope you will join us for the next program in this series. For more information on the next program and for registration information, please visit http://renewableenergyinfo.org. For additional information about this series, please contact Roger Stark, Gene Gurevich, Matthew Frank and Grant Rauscher, our ABA/ACORE/BNEF Webinars Vice Chairs.

About the Committee

The Renewable, Alternative, and Distributed Energy Resources (RADER) Committee will examine and disseminate information on those legal policy and practical implementation issues which affect expansion of markets for renewable and distributed energy resources. The Committee will have five primary areas of focus: (1) innovative approaches to stimulating renewable and distributed energy resource development; (2) measures for commoditization and value maximization of fuel, environment and tax-related legal at-tributes of renewable energy and distributed generation production; (3) constraints on fitting renewable resources and distributed generation (whether or not powered by renewable fuels) into the framework of national and states' energy policy; (4) relating renewable energy resource and distributed generation development to environmental legal requirements; and (5) issues related to structuring finance for renewable energy and distributed generation.
