EPA's Green Power Partnership Hosts Webinar

Renewable Energy Hedges: How they can save you money and reduce your carbon emissions

On March 31, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Eastern time, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Green Power Partnership will host a Webinar on renewable energy hedges. Participants will learn how “contract for differences” hedges work, and how an organization can use these financial agreements to reduce and stabilize energy costs while decreasing its carbon emissions.

The Webinar will feature a case study of Southern New Hampshire University’s renewable energy hedge contract, which guarantees a fixed price for 15 years for the 15 million kWh of electricity it uses annually. Webinar presenters will be Timothy Swanson from NextEra Energy Resources, Hunter Brownlie from Eco Power Hedge, and Roy Morrison from Southern New Hampshire University.
