Clean Power Finance (CPF), a provider of financial services and software for the distributed solar industry, has joined the Electricity Innovation Lab (eLab), a group organized by the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) to study barriers to the deployment of distributed energy resources in the U.S.
‘We are very excited to be part of eLab, which provides an essential forum for informed discussion among a wide range of influential organizations,’ says CPF CEO Nat Kreamer. ‘Joining a working group convened by a respected third party such as RMI and working in concert with major utilities, corporations and public agencies complements our other efforts to address obstacles facing the utility and solar industries.’
eLab includes representatives from San Diego Gas & Electric, Pacific Gas & Electric, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the U.S. Navy, Wal-Mart, Microsoft, SunEdison and SunPower, among others.
‘eLab creates a place for constructive dialogue between groups that otherwise might not even be at the same table,’ says RMI Program Director James Newcomb. ‘The interactive discussion and shared insights help players from all sectors of the power industry make more informed decisions.’
