Making Our Way Through Uncertain Times
Overarching policies have been generally established for the electricity sector and local economies in New England with respect to decarbonization goals. However, as we sit here today – 20 to 30 years away from the finish line – we are still unsure of the road we will take. At this year’s Power Markets Conference, we will hear from market participants, stakeholders, and experts from around the world about the ways we can maintain a reliable and affordable electricity system through markets and market-like mechanisms. Moreover, we will discuss if, when, and where we will have to rely on non-market approaches, as well as the consequential tradeoffs that arise for consumers and electricity sector participants.
Welcome & Introductions

Panel I: Race to Net Zero – An International Perspective
Over 100 countries have committed to carbon neutrality in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. National governments are turning to the power sector to reduce emissions by integrating clean energy resources into electricity market structures. Some countries are advancing rapidly and are on track to operating zero carbon systems within the next decade. With vastly different market designs than the U.S. northeast, how are countries approaching the energy transition? Are there innovative designs that the Northeast could and should adopt as we race to net zero? Our panelists joining us from the Europe, Asia, South America and Australia, will discuss how other countries are designing their markets to integrate clean energy resource growth, and how they are maintaining system reliability and affordability.

Panel II: Developments in New England

Now is your chance to get up to speed and hear new insights into what is developing in the New England power market landscape as we race to achieve a decarbonized economy. You will learn about what the ISO is studying for potential future market designs and insights from the states and stakeholders about what the path to a decarbonized power system should look like. You may even hear about what isn’t currently under discussion, but maybe should be! This is a front-line panel of top regional experts that are prepared to both challenge one another and answer questions from an expert audience.
