CLE approval is pending for IL. Immediately following the program, Polsinelli PC will graciously sponsor a reception.
VIDEO WEBCAST PARTICIPATION AVAILABLE.
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, some traditional baseload resources have faced retirement before the end of their useful life. Recently, the Department of Energy directed the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to adopt rules requiring RTOs/ISOs with capacity markets to revise their market rules to ensure a reasonable return for certain baseload resources. 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 benefits of current generation resources while simultaneously achieving environmental policy goals.
