Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program Portal 

The U.S. EPA's Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program is meant to collect accurate and timely GHG data from large GHG sources in the U.S. to inform future policy decisions. However, the companies affected by this rule can become overwhelmed staying up-to-date on the regular issuances and intricacies of the program.

The CE3 project, "Assisting Ohio Stakeholders with EPA's Mandatory Reporting Requirements," began in 2011 with the goal of facilitating a productive information exchange among Ohio facilities and state agencies affected by the U.S. EPA's GHG Reporting Program. Below are some examples of the work being conducted under this grant.

The 2014 CE3 Energy Webinar Series #2: "Changes in Ohio’s Electricity Market – Prospects for 2014"
Tuesday, March 25 from 12:00-1:30 PM

Click here to register!
Utilities operating in Ohio make their strategic and operational decisions based on energy market trends, policies, rules, regulations, technologies, prices and more. Those signals also influence energy users, as well as the PJM, in planning on the timely issues of net metering, capacity markets, fuel switching, decoupling and energy efficiency initiatives. Join the experts as we discuss the many factors that are shaping Ohio’s energy market today and what Ohio energy users might expect to see unfold in 2014. Moderated by Mark R. Shanahan, Principal, New Morning Energy, LLC.

Past Events

 

September 27, 2013 Event: "A Workshop for Efficiency, Emissions and Energy Choices in Ohio"
Building upon the state and federal momentum in energy efficiency and emissions management, CE3's one-day workshop explored how efficiency measures can help Ohio stakeholders achieve their energy cost-savings and emissions goals. New this year, we presented two tracks 1) Efficiency & Emissions and 2) Shale Energy Topics to address Ohio's diverse energy resources. Senator Rob Portman provided the morning address, and more than two dozen expert speakers presented on energy-related topics throughout the day.
