If you are in Washington, DC and interested in electricity policy, then I hope I will see you at this upcoming event at the American Enterprise Institute on Thursday afternoon.
Why is the process of restructuring and institutional change so different in electricity than in other infrastructure industries? What is the current status of state and federal electricity policy? How can electricity policy objectives at the federal and state level evolve to match innovation and technological change? Discussing these and other questions will be economist Lynne Kiesling, whose work at Northwestern University focuses on electricity regulation and restructuring; John A. Anderson, president of the Electricity Consumers of America; and Peter Fox-Penner, a principal at the Brattle Group who is an expert on energy and electric power industry issues. AEI resident scholar Kenneth P. Green, acting director of the AEI Center for Regulatory Studies, will moderate the discussion.
If you’re there, please make sure to stop me and say hi!
