GLRPPR Sector Resource: Expanding the Renewable Portfolio Standard for Michigan: A Study

Title:
Expanding the Renewable Portfolio Standard for Michigan: A Study

Abstract:
Analyzes the real impacts of raising Michigan's Renewable Portfolio Standard - the policy mandating the percentage of the state's electric generation capacity that must be provided by renewable power. The study, sponsored by the University of Michigan Energy Institute, analyzes several scenarios, detailing the changes to different power generation sources such as coal and natural gas, the environmental benefits to the state, and the associated costs under each.
