Event Details


WHAT: NECA Annual Power Markets Conference
WHERE: Waltham Woods Conference Center, 860 Winter Street, Waltham, MA
WHEN: Monday, December 5, 2022 from 9 am to 4 pm

The New England electricity market, like many other electricity markets around the world, is at a crossroads. There is near consensus that the status quo is not sustainable and market reforms are necessary. But there is disagreement among stakeholders, experts, and regulators on the best approach forward. To facilitate the search for a workable solution – the right path to be taken – NECA is proposing a frank and open discussion of the key issues facing the New England electricity market – the search for reliability while maintaining affordability during the decarbonization transition. In addition, given the necessity of having customer cooperation and supplementing utility-scale resources with distributed energy resources to achieve policy goals of decarbonization, the last panel of the day will consider how the traditional delineation between wholesale and retail markets is shifting and perhaps fading. At the end of the day, we hope that we will be one step closer to a roadmap that will guide us towards the right path.
