Nixon Peabody attorneys James Duffy and Ruth Silman will be presenting at EUCI’s Clean Energy Markets & RECs Symposium 2019, June 5–6, 2019 in Providence, RI.

From the EUCI website:

This symposium will evaluate renewable energy markets, diving into the dynamics of both voluntary and compliance markets and how they are formed through regulation, policy and evolving consumer awareness and demand. It will review the function of Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and their essential role in renewable energy developments and financial transactions, providing a current and in-depth understanding of REC market forces, dynamics and trading instruments. Various renewable market experts will describe active and emerging REC markets in the U.S., analyzing key financial and contractual considerations. This program will also provide detailed information on growing voluntary renewable and renewable markets across the U.S., describing trends and dynamics in regulated and retail utility markets, utility green pricing programs, and covering trends such as corporate renewable procurement and the inclusion of RECs in bundled power purchase agreements (PPAs). There will be a discussion on typical processes for REC verification, certification, system administration, and appropriate financial structuring to achieve their optimum transactional value. In addition to the traditional classroom setting education, attendees will also benefit from an interactive “REC trading” exercise to gain hands-on experience in the commodity marketplace.
