For 16 years, the AAI’s Annual Energy Roundtable has gathered experts in antitrust and regulation from government, industry, advocacy, and academia to discuss major competition policy issues involving electricity and energy. The keynote address for this year’s Energy Roundtable will be delivered by Nancy L. Rose, Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Economic Analysis in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.
Since September 2014, Dr. Rose has led a team of more than 50 Ph.D. economists analyzing matters for the Division and worked with Division leaders to establish policy priorities and provide advice on a wide range of merger and nonmerger investigations and competition policy advocacy. Dr. Rose is on leave from the Charles P. Kindleberger Professorship in Applied Economics at the Department of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her teaching and research have focused on industrial organization, antitrust, and the economics of regulation, and include numerous studies of the electricity industry under regulation and restructuring.
The 2016 AAI Energy Roundtable will focus on taking stock of competition after two decades of restructuring in U.S. wholesale electricity markets. The objective is to identify the major areas where the goals of fostering competition and consumer benefits -- while ensuring reliability of the electricity supply -- have been furthered or frustrated, and to identify enforcement and policy priorities moving forward.
The morning will open with the traditional Year in Review, followed by a moderated panel and roundtable "Is Wholesale Electricity Competition Delivering on the Promise? Taking the Temperature of Markets, Suppliers, and Consumers." The keynote luncheon address will segue into the afternoon panel and roundtable "Reassessing the ‘Divides' in Wholesale Competition: Centralized v. Decentralized Markets, Antitrust v. Regulation, and State v. Federal.” See the complete agenda here.
