Nuclear Energy and the Clean Energy Future

Wednesday, Mar 23, 2016

Nuclear energy provides approximately 20% of America's electricity - the majority of the country's zero-emissions electricity. Yet many nuclear power plants are struggling to stay in business. These struggles raise questions about how states will implement their commitments to lower the carbon intensity of their power sectors. This event will examine the role that nuclear energy should play in helping America's transition towards a lower-carbon energy system as well as legal and policy options for supporting nuclear energy. New York's recently proposed Clean Energy Standard, which is an innovative response to nuclear energy's challenges, will be discussed in detail.

Speakers: Raj Addepalli, Managing Director of Utility Rates and Services - New York Public Service Commission; Emily Hammond, Associate Dean for Public Engagement; Professor of Law - George Washington University Law School; Emilie Nelson, Vice President of Market Operations- New York Independent System Operator; & Eduardo Porter, Reporter - The New York Times

Date: Wednesday, March 23, 8 - 10 am
