NDN Green Project Director and Electricity 2.0 author Michael Moynihan will speak on March 24 at noon at the National Press Club at an event entitled "Clean Energy, Smart Grid, and Energy Efficiency: Competitive Electricity Markets and the Path to America’s Clean Energy Future." The event will include leading experts in the clean energy and electricity fields.

The Compete Coalition, the sponsors of the event, issued the following release:

WHAT: Panel discussion exploring the intersection of competitive electricity markets and innovative clean energy, smart grid, energy efficiency, and demand response technologies. 

Unique characteristics of organized electricity markets, such as transparent price signals, well-functioning forward markets, and large geographic scope encourage innovative energy solutions to meet America’s economic and environmental needs. These findings were reflected in the recent “Electricity 2.0” report by NDN and the New Policy Institute, which found that competition in electricity markets is needed to stimulate innovations such as smart grid and clean energy technologies.
