As utilities, industries, investors and state governments explore ways to reduce emissions in order to meet state and federal greenhouse gas reduction requirements, many wonder how to achieve reductions in a way that doesn’t increase energy costs, harm the economy and hurt job growth. What tactics will utilities employ and how can policymakers assist in achieving targeted reductions at least cost, or with net economic benefit? This webinar will explore low carbon, high productivity options for lowering emissions while highlighting utility efforts in this area.

Speakers will include:

  • Judi Greenwald, Deputy Director for Climate, Environment and Efficiency at the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis for the U.S. Department of Energy
  • Daniel Chartier, Director of Environmental Markets and Air Quality Programs for Edison Electrical Institute
  • Jack Ihle, Director of Environmental Policy for Xcel Energy
