RPS panel says legislation could help increase security, reduce emissions, and lower costs

After a heated battle in the Senate, language for a national renewable portfolio standard did not make it into the Senate's final energy package. Now, as the House takes up energy legislation, will the discussion over a renewable portfolio standard be revived? During today's E&ETV Event Coverage, RPS proponents explain how a national standard could increase energy security, reduce emissions and lower costs. Panelists include: Leon Lowery of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee; Chris Namovicz of the Energy Information Administration; Marilyn Brown, professor of energy policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology; and Richard Glick, director of government affairs at PPM energy.
