David Doot, Joseph Fagan, Patrick Gerity and Jennifer Galiette authored an article,"What's Next For Wholesale Electricity Market Operators," for Law360.
The article examines the impact of the Supreme Court's decision in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission v. Electric Power Supply Association on each of the regions of the United States. The Court's decision reversed and remanded the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decision holding that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission did not have jurisdiction over demand response. The article discusses what will happen in each region now that the Supreme Court has spoken.
Jennifer Galiette will be a speaker at a New England Women in Energy and the Environment (NEWIEE) event hosted on campus at UMass Amherst.
Florence Davis co-wrote an article entitled "Taming the Duck--Distributed Energy Resource Solutions to Renewable Energy Integration," for Bloomberg BNA's Daily Environment Report.
