CANCELLED: Nuclear Power and State Economic Impacts

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel our March 1st webinar, “Nuclear Power and State Economic Impacts”. If you are interested in learning more about the study, you can read the original report by clicking here. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

We cordially invite you to join us for a guest webinar by Michael Purdie, Manager of Energy and Economic Analyses at the Nuclear Energy Institute, on March 1, 2017.

Nuclear power contributes 20 percent of the nation’s electricity generation. Nuclear power stations play an especially significant role in some states’ energy portfolio, impacting both electricity prices and the broader economy.

For this webinar, Mr. Purdie will discuss his report on the economic impacts of Millstone Power Station, located near New London, Connecticut. He evaluated its direct and indirect effects on prices, economic output, and employment for both Connecticut and the rest of New England. He will review his findings and explain modeling the effects using REMI PI+.

You will have a chance to engage in Q&A after the presentation.

Each presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer them at no charge via the Citrix GotoWebinar web conferencing platform. Advance registration is required; please click here to register.


REMI Webinar: TranSight 4.0 Launch Series

We are excited to offer a special three-part webinar series to mark the release of TranSight 4.0, our next generation platform for evaluating the economic impacts of infrastructure proposals.

We will be looking ahead to rapid change in infrastructure amid Trump’s proposed investments, technological innovation, and the new economy. Dynamic economic modeling will play a vital role in understanding these developments.

REMI Senior Economic Associate Marley Buchman will guide you through the enhanced navigation and policy variable options of the TranSight 4.0 platform. He will also delve into the most pressing questions about infrastructure and transportation policy.

Session 1: Rebuilding America – Trump’s Infrastructure Goals and Challenges
As a candidate, President Trump promised to invest $1 trillion over 10 years in the country’s aging infrastructure. Dynamic economic modeling allows for objective assessment of infrastructure priorities. Careful analysis also provides insight about different financing options, such as the private-public partnerships that Trump prefers.
