EBC Energy Seminar: Impact on Renewables Market of Marcellus Shale Gas and Canadian Hydro

April 6, 2011 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

As the regional economy lags, more New England voices ask:

  • Why pay high premiums for wind and solar projects?
  • Why not exploit the large low cost shale gas discoveries and minimize short term rates?
  • Why not expand Class I Renewable definitions to include clean Canadian Hydro & Wind?

At this EBC Energy Program, a panel of regional utility, ISO-NE, marketing, policy, legal, regulatory and environmental experts examine:

  • Extent of new shale gas available to New England
  • Environmental impacts of shale gas extraction
  • How to meet RPS requirements while minimizing rates
  • Effects of proposed EPA regulation of carbon emissions
  • Market impacts of large regional shale gas, hydro and wind imports
  • Environmental and economic benefits of local wind and solar investments

Speakers include:

  • James G. Daly, Director, Electric and Gas Energy Supply, NSTAR Electric and Gas Corp.
  • John Meeske, President, Energy Market Decisions, Inc.
  • Paul Hibbard, Vice President , Analysis Group
  • Mary Beth Gentleman, Energy Technology & Renewables Group, Foley Hoag, LLP
