GW Law Joins the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE)

The George Washington University Law School's Environmental and Energy Law Program is excited to announce its membership in the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE).

ACORE, a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization, is dedicated to building a secure and prosperous America with clean, renewable energy. ACORE provides a common educational platform for a wide range of interests in the renewable energy community, focusing on technology, finance and policy. We convene thought leadership forums and create energy industry partnerships to communicate the economic, security and environmental benefits of renewable energy.

The scope of ACORE's membership spans all constituencies in the renewable energy sector, including financial institutions, government leaders, educators, end-users, professional service providers and allied non-profit groups.

ACORE accomplishes much of its work by convening the thought leaders in each of these constituencies, publishing collaborative research and facilitating communications among our members, their stakeholders and the media.

Membership in ACORE will help further expand the reach of GW’s rapidly growing Energy Law Program. A GW Law student has already begun research work as part of our Environment and Energy Law Practicum on trends in state renewable energy legislation. GW Law also expects to become actively involved in two of ACORE’s major projects one of which involves the use of renewable energy by the Department of Defense and the other deals with power generation and infrastructure.
