Subramanian, Narayan S. 2020: “Powering the Future: An Inclusive National Clean Energy Standard with Negative Emissions Technologies.”

Subramanian, Narayan S. 2020: “Powering the Future: An Inclusive National Clean Energy Standard with Negative Emissions Technologies.” Columbia Journal of Environmental Law 45 (2). https://doi.org/10.7916/cjel.v45i2.6158.

"This Note argues that a National Clean Energy Standard (NCES) is critical to harmonize state clean energy policies while also providing them with legal certainty. [...] This Note puts forward an NCES framework that can effectively incorporate NETs while giving states the flexibility to choose between clean energy and NETs investments to achieve their NCES obligations."
