New England Electricity Restructuring Roundtable

We are delighted to announce that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy and ISO New England CEO Gordon van Welie will join Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Cheryl LaFleur at the September 19th New England Electricity Restructuring Roundtable.

The three keynotes will address issues of great importance to New England:

  1. U.S. EPA Administrator McCarthy will discuss EPA's proposed Clean Power Plan proposed rules [aka Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act], and how they may interface with and impact RGGI and other New England states' clean energy policies and programs.
  2. FERC Chairman LaFleur will address a range of important issues and topics related to New England's electricity/gas markets and reliability.
  3. ISO New England CEO van Welie will discuss the economic and reliability challenges resulting from an electric power industry in transition. In particular, he will discuss ISO New England's actions to address the retirement of coal, oil and nuclear generation, the high dependency on natural gas generation, and increased investments in renewable energy and behind-the-meter resources.

There are important changes that you need to be aware of for this Roundtable.

  1. Given the expected draw for this Roundtable (and our long string of standing-room only Roundtables), we will be requiring pre-registration and a ticket for this event, as well as capping in-person attendance.
  2. There will also be a small fee of $65 for this Roundtable to ensure a meaningful registration process (with a discounted fee of $35 for government or non-profit employees, and students).
  3. We are reducing the live-streaming fee for this Roundtable to $40, to facilitate a web participation alternative to in-person attendance.
  4. Both in-person attendance and live-streaming will continue to be free for Roundtable Sponsors, but Sponsors will have to pre-register and get a ticket along with everyone else.

Thanks for your patience and understanding and we look forward to your participation in this exciting upcoming Roundtable.
