Key PJM Electricity and Natural Gas Market Catalysts

PJM Regulatory Agenda in Limbo
Monumental Reforms to Energy Price Formation and Capacity Market Awaiting FERC Action:

  • PJM board has filed updated energy price formation rules with FERC, leapfrogging stakeholders after failing to reach consensus

  • Confusion is swirling around PJM’s upcoming capacity market, with FERC striking down current market rules last year but no suitable replacement has been approved by the Commission.

  • Reforms appear designed to boost prices in PJM, possibly leading to upheaval for retail electricity providers

Learn how to navigate these fast-paced developments and their impact on electricity and natural gas prices at this one-day conference, led by national power experts and held in an intimate classroom-style setting.
