You might not have noticed it at first, but in 2018 there will be an annual energy conference called the Renewable Energy Summit.
Its theme is the future, and what we will actually be able to produce in the future.
It will be held at the Hotel du Cap in Paris in April, with speakers including Tesla CEO Elon Musk, SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive and US President Donald Trump.
What you might not know is that this year’s conference has already taken place, with the first-ever ‘energy conference’ taking place in Paris last November.
The event is part of a series of conferences that aim to promote renewable energy sources around the world.
Each of these is part and parcel of a larger plan to ‘unlock’ the energy market.
But this year, the focus will be on the US.
The US Energy Department (USED) is the main regulator of renewable energy and a central pillar of the Trump administration’s energy agenda.
This means that its job is to keep tabs on all of the energy projects going forward, and to ensure they comply with the Clean Power Plan, which aims to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from US power plants.
The Clean Power plan was launched by former US President Barack Obama and is aimed at curbing global warming by restricting emissions from coal-fired power plants, the second biggest contributor to climate change.
The Trump administration has been trying to roll back this, in an attempt to ensure that the US remains a carbon-heavy economy.
The plan has been slammed by environmental groups, who argue that it will damage the US economy and that it is undermining efforts to combat climate change in the world at large.
But the Trump government is looking to roll it back, too.
As it stands, the Clean Energy Jobs Act, which the USED will be tasked with implementing, will force US-based projects to buy their electricity from American-based power producers.
This has been criticised by environmental activists, who say it is the opposite of the Clean Jobs Act that President Donald Trumps predecessor Barack Obama signed in 2009, which set up the US’s Clean Power Pilot program.
The law also requires that the project must have a renewable energy component, and must have an annual renewable energy revenue of at least $50 million.
The bill also includes new regulations on carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, which will allow the US to capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it for later use.
These regulations are expected to take effect in 2021, a year ahead of the US Clean Power Program, which began in 2021.
The Renewable Futures Act (RFFA), the Clean energy and Climate Act and the US Energy Independence and Security Act will also be brought in next year.
The RFFA and Clean Energy Act will set out a number of requirements for the companies that are to be required to comply with them, including ensuring that they are building new renewable energy projects in the US and that they do not have more than 500 MW of installed capacity, as well as setting up a carbon capture program for each renewable energy project they plan to build.
The new regulatory requirements are intended to ensure the US continues to be a ‘clean energy superpower’ and to incentivise US companies to keep their green projects running.
While the Trump Administration has been looking to undo the Clean Powers Plan, the Energy Department has also been pushing for greater US participation in the global renewables market.
The goal is to increase US involvement by 25% by 2020.
Under the US Renewable Development Act, a new US renewable energy industry is to be created.
It would be called Renewable American Energy (RAE), and would be required by the new law to build a total of 1,000 MW of renewable power capacity.
The company would be awarded a federal loan guarantee, which would then be paid back through a 20-year, $5 billion loan.
There are many questions that remain unanswered about the US renewable power sector.
Why is the US a clean energy superpower?
Why are renewable energy companies such as SolarCity, Tesla, Solar City Renewables and other companies allowed to operate?
And what is the role of the Energy Independence Security Act?
All of these questions will be answered in the first half of 2018, when the US Department of Energy and the Department of Commerce will be releasing a ‘State of the Renewables Report’.
The report will provide a glimpse into the future of the renewable energy sector, with many of the questions that the public will have asked.
Here’s what you need know about what the US has to say about renewable energy in 2018.
Renewable energy sources Renewable sources: Why are they important?
Renewable power is currently the second largest source of electricity in the United States, after natural gas.
According to the US Census Bureau, there are over 7.2 million US households with solar panels installed.
There were 1.4 million solar installations in the year to
