Midwest Chapter

Join the EBA Midwest Chapter for an afternoon program entitled, Today’s Regional Electric Markets and the Impact of State and Federal Policies to Prioritize Resources on November 1, 2017 at 4:00pm CT at the office of Polsinelli PC in Chicago, IL. CLE approval is pending for IL.

Program Overview

Today’s wholesale energy and capacity markets are designed to select resources based on principles of operational and economic efficiency without specific regard to resource type.  As new technologies and state-level policy decisions drive economic outcomes, traditional baseload resources face retirement before the end of their useful life. Panelists will discuss the tension between state policies to promote renewable and lower-carbon generation and the wholesale market’s promotion of generation resources based on operational and economic efficiency.  Panelists will also discuss how to move forward in order to capture the operational and economic efficiencies of current generation resources while trying to balance the interest in retaining generation offering zero carbon emissions and encouraging renewable generation.
