Former Sen. Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., will serve as a distinguished fellow for a Stanford University program focused on the development of renewable energy projects and the promotion of renewable portfolio standards (RPS).

According to a Stanford Law School News report, Bingaman - a five-term senator, former chairman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and Stanford alumnus - will help the university's Steyer-Taylor Center for Energy Policy and Finance assess states' RPS mandates and develop strategies to improve the standards.

“I look forward to helping advance the Steyer-Taylor Center’s mission to find cost-effective solutions to advance clean energy,” said Bingaman. “I’m excited to work with Stanford faculty and students to develop approaches to policy and finance that make sense to the investment community, Congress and state legislatures.”
