Last year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, which resulted in a more state-controlled process for regulating carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. Approaching the first anniversary of the rule’s finalization, Jackson Walker partner Mike Nasi will address the impact of the ACE Rule on the state level during The Energy Council’s 2020 Federal Energy and Environmental Matters Conference.
Held on March 12-15, 2020, in Washington, D.C., the conference will feature 15 different speakers, including U.S. Representative Kelly Armstrong (North Dakota), Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Neil Chatterjee, Assistant Secretary of Energy Steve Winberg, and Anne Idsal, Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for the EPA Office of Air and Radiation.
