Scott Nystrom - Power Markets and Economic Impacts of a U.S. Clean Energy Standard (CES)

A Clean Energy Standard (CES) requires that a certain percentage of electric demand is met with generation from qualifying zero-emissions resources, such as wind, solar, nuclear, hydroelectric, biomass, and possibly carbon capture facilities.

With many states already employing some version of a CES through Renewable Portfolio Standards, the Biden administration and Democratic leadership in Congress may consider some form of a CES as a part of their renewed emphasis on addressing climate change.

REMI will be hosting a special guest webinar, “Power Market and Economic Impacts of a U.S. Clean Energy Standard (CES),” on Tuesday, March 9th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET), with an encore presentation scheduled for Thursday, March 11th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET), that will feature Senior Director Scott Nystrom from FTI Consulting.

This webinar will discuss an FTI Consulting simulation on the impacts of a U.S. Clean Energy Standard on power markets, as well as the national economy.

Mr. Nystrom will cover the approach, methodology, and resulting impacts of a potential CES policy on U.S. power markets in the PLEXOS model and U.S. regions in the REMI model.

Following the webinar, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers.

The presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it free of charge via the Citrix GoToWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click here to register.
