In a letter to the Department of Energy (DOE) Secretary Granholm, the Clean Energy Buyers Association (CEBA) congratulated the Biden-Harris Administration on the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) and expressed interest in sharing energy customer perspectives on how to implement critical data access pieces in the IIJA.
The IIJA includes a requirement for the Energy Information Administration (EIA) to collect more granular real-time data on emissions and resource mixes for all U.S. balancing authorities. This is particularly significant for CEBA members who have deployed over 44 gigawatts (GWs) of clean energy since 2008. Lack of access to reliable energy data, including greenhouse gas emissions, has impeded energy customers in their journey to maximize their decarbonization impacts in energy procurement. CEBA looks forward to working closely with DOE and EIA to ensure that there is robust stakeholder engagement in the data collection process and transparent information and technical analysis regarding data collection methodologies.
