CCRE Commentary Overview

CCRE Commentary covers

The CCRE Commentary publications are authored by recognized experts and are intended to present fact-based, reasoned opinions and points of view about the some of the challenging issues facing the energy sector. These commentaries, each focused on a single subject, are aimed at extending the value of the CCRE’s existing network and conference discussions.

They are also meant to stimulate a broader and more inclusive public forum to help advance a fuller understanding of available clean, reliable energy system options for the future. As each Commentary is electronically published it becomes part of the CCRE’s Publication Library. These are available for free and can be downloaded from the CCRE’s website. As each Commentary is released a copy is also emailed to our subscriber list and to key stakeholders in government, agencies, institutions and organizations involved in the energy sector.
