Supporting the transition to clean, efficient, reliable, and affordable power
The United States is at the forefront of a profound transition in the way it produces and consumes electricity. New energy technologies, more efficient practices, growing consumer concern about air pollution and climate change, coupled with new consumer service options and a shifting policy landscape are transforming every aspect of the power grid.
RAP’s seasoned team of former utility and air quality regulators, ratepayer advocates, and technical experts brings deep experience to the most vexing issues posed by the accelerating transformation of the U.S. power sector. As trusted advisors, our experts turn complex challenges into opportunities to deploy new clean energy technologies and best practices, protect system reliability, and improve environmental performance.
As a non-partisan institution, RAP provides cutting-edge research, trusted analysis, and innovative ideas to leaders across a broad range of experience who are engaged in clean energy transitions at the state, regional, and national levels. We offer tailored recommendations on topics such as ratemaking, demand-side resources, smart grid, the decoupling of utility sales from profits, and clean energy deployment. While taking a long-term view, RAP helps regulators, legislators, governors, and consumer advocates answer pressing questions and devise new approaches to create a low-carbon, clean energy system.
