HARRISBURG, PA. — The Retail Energy Supply Association will convene its 2017 Energy Competition Symposium in Boston Sept. 20 featuring a distinguished group of speakers exploring the leading issues affecting retail energy competition nationally.
Among the key issues to be discussed at the half-day event is the impact competitive retail energy markets have had over the past two decades on product and industry innovation and environmental improvement. Another panel discussion will address “women of power,” their leadership roles in the competitive market space, and the challenges they and the industry they lead must confront.
The event will feature a keynote address by Patrick Woodcock, Assistant Secretary with the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.
Other distinguished speakers include Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources Commissioner Judith Judson; Commissioner Abigail Anthony of the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission; former Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Nora Mead Brownell; New England Power Generators Association President Dan Dolan; and Greg Cunningham, Vice President and Director of the Conservation Law Foundation’s Clean Energy and Climate Change program.
The event also will feature remarks by Dr. Philip O’Connor, former Illinois Commerce Commission chairman and author of the white paper, RESTRUCTURING RECHARGED – The Superior Performance of Competitive Electricity Markets 2008-2016, which compares and contrasts the performance of competitive electricity markets with that of traditional monopoly utility regulation.
The symposium will begin at 12:30 pm at the Courtyard Marriott on Tremont Street, Boston, Sept. 20, 2017. Visit the registration page to register for this free event.
