Jennie Chen, Senior Counsel, Federal Energy Policy, will be a panelist at the Wholesale Markets Virtual Summit. Chen will discuss primary challenges to wholesale markets. Topics include:

  • How should the wholesale markets adapt to increased levels of renewables and storage, different patterns of weather and customer demand, resource diversity concerns, and greater levels of distributed resources?
  • Is it time for a rethinking of resource adequacy and reliability measures?
  • How much should markets be relied upon for resource decisions or should there be a focus on greater integrated resource planning?

Join public power and other thought leaders at the American Public Power Association's Wholesale Markets Summit virtual meeting to learn from each other, share perspectives and discuss where reforms are needed to RTO/ISO-operated wholesale markets and governance. This event will include a series of lively speakers and panels, and ample time for discussion and dialogue among the participants.
