Please join the New York Association for Energy Economics when we welcome Gavin Donohue of the Independent Power Producers of New York to our Thursday, July 14th, 2016 lunch.

Gavin will provide an overview of the regulatory and supply drivers impacting the New York wholesale energy markets. He will cover the latest regulatory issues such as the clean energy standard, RECs vs. PPAs, utility owned generation, the retention of nuclear facilities, transmission line development and Reforming the Energy Vision (REV). With respect to the markets he will provide a current state of the market report and talk to some of the latest developments looking to redesign the market to achieve specific public policy goals, RGGI, cost of carbon and a potential forward capacity market. Gavin will also spend time discussing the capacity market and in particular the demand curve reset requiring duel fuel units for the rest of state.
