Higher Education Solar Development: RFPs and Contract Issues

 

Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference 2016

Hyatt Regency, Baltimore, MD
April 5, 2016

Merrill L. Kramer was a speaker at the 11th Annual Smart and Sustainable Campuses Conference. Mr. Kramer's workshop, "Higher Education Solar Development: RFPs and Contract Issues," explored the complexities of issuing Request for Proposals (RFPs) and developing contracts, as well as identifying institutional administrative issues and opportunities for solar deployment. Participants had the opportunity to engage in a discussion with other colleges and universities about administrative issues associated with solar development in the higher education sector, and provide feedback to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) about what support is needed to overcome these administrative barriers.
