The Great Plains Institute (the Institute) provides public and private sector analysis, tools, and demonstration projects to drive consensus around state clean energy policy. Responsible for shaping their own energy policies, states wrestle with policy options related to generation, transmission, and distribution and how those choices affect a state’s ratepayers, economy, environmental condition, and the resiliency of a region’s electrical grid. By providing reliable research and analysis to policymakers, launching demonstration projects, and convening policymakers, the Institute helps inform states about the broad economic benefits of low carbon energy sources. The award supports general operations.
