Kate Konschnik, director of the Climate and Energy Program at Duke University's Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions will moderate Pricing Carbon in Energy Markets, hosted by the Energy Bar Association, on Tuesday, June 5, in Washington, D.C.

This two-hour session will explore how carbon could be priced directly into Regional Transmission Organizations and Independent System Operators in wholesale energy markets to enhance state and national environmental policies. After a brief introduction of how various factors are priced into energy markets, including existing state initiatives such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, representatives of Regional Transmission Organizations and others with federal energy market expertise will share ideas on the legal and practical questions raised by including carbon directly in wholesale energy market pricing.
