2017 Year in Review

TREIA's 2017 Year in Review is a collaborative effort by our Policy and Data Chair, Eric Padilla and his committee co-authors, Cyrus Reed and Chris Reeder. The report provides a round-up of local, state, and national policy trends from throughout the year. We wanted to equip our members with this useful reference tool that outlines substantive ways individuals, businesses, and policymakers around the world continued to embrace renewable energy in the past year. Enjoy!


TREIA is a network of project developers, corporations, financial institution end-users, utilities, manufacturers, service providers, academia and government leaders working to scale renewable energy, grow the local economy, and create jobs. Our industry stakeholders are involved in solar, wind, biomass, biofuel, energy efficiency, geothermal, hydro, ocean, and energy storage. About TREIA
