Abstract or Summary
  • Despite a great deal of attention paid to state renewable energy potential, there has been relatively little research on specific energy policies and their effect on the generation of renewable energy. This study seeks greater understanding of the state energy policies and how they individually affect the generation of wind, solar and biomass energy. Using a quantitative analysis of data from the United States, the results show that, despite geographic, economic, and political factors playing a significant role in renewable energy. Rebates had the most significant positive relationship to generating renewable energy. Required Green Power and Generation Disclosure policies were also significant and had a positive relationship for certain energy sources. These adopted policies which encourage individual consumer choice are the strongest policy predictors for net renewable energy generation form the aforementioned renewable energy sources.
