Increasing popularity of small scale, on-site power sources known as distributed generation has surged because of policies like net energy metering. Distributed generation—mainly rooftop solar—is transforming the way electricity is generated, transmitted and distributed. In 2015, state lawmakers will likely continue debates about the most appropriate way to balance consumer demand for distributed generation while recognizing the real and substantial fixed and variable costs incurred by electric utilities and the potential impact of these policies on nonsolar consumers.
This CSG eCademy session will feature perspectives from the electric power industry and a utility consumer advocate. Panelists will share their thoughts on how to balance the challenges and opportunities the growth of distributed generation has brought to the forefront and how to address consumer concerns.

States have recognized that increased international exposure can contribute to economic growth and increased trade and foreign investment. While international education has traditionally been a focus of higher education institutions and national efforts, several states are formalizing their approach to attract foreign students and encourage foreign exchange in strategic economic and workforce development plans. According to the Institute of International Education, 820,000 foreign students enrolled in U.S. institutions in 2013; that’s a 40 percent increase since 2001. During this eCademy session, academic and state international trade experts will identify trends in state government activity supporting internationalization and discuss why this is an area of increasing opportunity for states.
