United States: A Town Hall Discussion Of Regulatory Scenarios And No-Regrets Strategies For Georgia
Last Updated: October 5 2016

The Georgia Tech School of Public Policy and Emory University's Climate@Emory initiative invite you to attend a Town Hall meeting to discuss Georgia's energy future. It is scheduled for Friday, October 14, 2016, from 8:30 – 1 p.m., at All Saints Church in Atlanta. Coffee and lunch will be provided.

In February 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay of the Clean Power Plan, pending resolution of ongoing litigation. Georgia, along with many other states, has chosen to pause its efforts to develop a compliance plan while the stay is in place. In that context, the October 14 Town Hall will explore two central questions:

  1. What regulatory scenarios lie ahead for Georgia? We will consider a range of potential scenarios, taking into account the ongoing Clean Power litigation, Supreme Court vacancy, upcoming November elections, other possible regulations, and other issues.
  2. What "no-regrets strategies" can Georgia consider as we navigate these regulatory scenarios? We will then shift into a series of small-group "café conversations" to explore how Georgia can ensure it is well prepared to thrive across a range of future scenarios. Topics include: (1) Maximizing Innovation, Economic Development and Jobs, (2) Economic Transition Opportunities in the Event of Power Plant Closings, (3) Addressing Low-Income Energy Needs (4) Achieving Environmental Compliance (5) Adapting the Utility Business Model and (6) Ongoing State Energy Planning.

This event is a follow-up to the first "Choosing Our Energy Future" Town Hall last September. It is intended to engage a broad range of stakeholders, including policymakers, practitioners, students, and the general public.

Registration is required, as space is limited. Please RSVP via this link.
