An interview with Emily Fisher, Vice President, Law, and Corporate Secretary at Edison Electric Institute about the view from Washington following a Thursday, December 7 Plenary discussion at POWER-GEN International. Fisher describes the two different avenues that President Trump is pursuing regarding regulations and the energy industry.
On the one hand, he seeks additional regulation of the energy market through Energy Secretary Perry’s NOPR, which directs the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to set market rules in place that would support coal and nuclear power. On the other hand, he’s looking to remove regulations, such as the Clean Power Plan, which were put in place during the Obama administration. Watch the video below to learn more.
