EBA Energizer: A Legal Review of State Incentives for Nuclear Power
Nuclear power represents the majority of the country’s carbon-free energy, but is facing tough economic headwinds in competitive generation markets. New York and Illinois have recently implemented incentive programs to maintain these zero-carbon assets, and other states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania are considering the same. These programs can potentially provide relief for the nuclear industry. But they have come under attack as being preempted by FERC’s ratemaking authority over wholesale electricity markets. In the meantime, FERC has begun to revisit whether and how it can restructure competitive markets to coexist with state incentive programs.
Join the Nuclear Regulation Subcommittee as they dive into these issues with their esteemed panelists. Expect a lively and informative discussion about how competitive markets should be structured. This event is being co-sponsored with the American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources.
