Register to join us from 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET on Thursday, October 13, for a webinar discussion of key electricity sector issues that will face the next president. 

The next president will take office during a period of rapid market and regulatory change for the U.S. electricity sector. Due to statutory deadlines, pending lawsuits, and agency rulemakings--if not by choice--the next president will tackle energy policy. To prepare policymakers for what promises to be a dynamic period in electricity law and policy, a new paper from the University of North Carolina Center for Climate, Energy, Environment, and Economics; the Harvard Environmental Policy Initiative; and Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions provides an overview of six key areas of federal policy, and for each area, identifies the decision points--in time or circumstances--that will force the next administration to make choices that shape the future of the grid. For each decision point, the paper, which will be released on October 10, explores the next president's options and the authorities that he or she could deploy.
