Retail Access Panel: The
Panel will tackle the evolving state of retail access in New York, focusing on
the issues presented in the New York Public Service Commission’s efforts to
revamp retail access though the Order Resetting Retail Energy Markets, and the
pending legal challenges to this regulation, that will determine the future of
retail access. The Panel also will
discuss the retail access business model and consider the potential impacts of
the Reforming the Energy Vision proceedings on that model.
Telephone Consumer Protection
Act Panel: The Panel will discuss the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and
its ramifications for utilities making robocalls to customers’ landlines and
wireless phones. This will include a new order issued by the Federal
Communications Commission in August related to utility emergency calls.
Derivative Trading Activities: The Panel will discuss oversight of energy
derivative markets by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission as it
implements the Dodd Frank Act, including its authority over electricity markets
operated by Independent System Operators, and the interplay between the
Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Clean Energy Standard
Panel: This Panel will discuss legal issues and considerations associated
with the Clean Energy Standard, which was adopted by the New York Public
Service Commission on August 1, 2016.
