Additionally, REsurety’s co-founder & CEO Lee Taylor will be on the panel: Power Markets Outlook: Valuation & Price Curves on March 13, 2023 at 1:30 pm at the event.
The past year has seen major disruptions in many power markets: extreme weather, the War in Ukraine/gas pricing, interconnection queue pauses, and other capacity market issues have affect forward price curves, risk assessment, and long-term project valuations. This session will discuss the state of US power markets, providing perspectives on pricing curves, project valuations, and the economic useful life of projects.
• Are capacity markets functioning properly or are they becoming a hindrance to renewable deployment? • Will interconnection queue reforms, like the 2-year reviews pause in PJM and ‘first-ready, first-served’ enable more efficiency and lessen wait times? • How are changes to forward pricing and energy futures affecting the bankability of projects, and what does the uncertainty created by the Ukraine War mean for projections and assumptions? • Are the mid-term elections affecting assumptions in the power markets?

Maximizing & Measuring Carbon Impact: How to Operationalize “Emissions First” Principles
REsurety’s Co-Founder and CEO, Lee Taylor, will be at the 2023 CERAWeek conference in Houston, TX to lead the session Maximizing & Measuring Carbon Impact: How to Operationalize “Emissions First” Principles, on March 7th at 2:30 pm.
About the session
Leading clean energy buyers and investors have called for an evolution of carbon accounting standards – moving away from megawatt-hour matching and toward an emissions impact-centric system. That evolution requires more granular, accurate data, and the tools to make it actionable. In this session you will learn how marginal emissions data, which measures the carbon impact of consuming or generating energy at a given time and place, can be used to maximize the impact of clean energy investments, and to accurately measure that impact.

Learn how you can drive impact with proposed revisions to the GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance.
Between now and March 14, 2023, the creators of the GHG Protocol are accepting feedback on the accounting standard and how it should be improved. The GHGP has been successful in motivating hundreds of companies and institutions worldwide to invest in renewable energy, but when it comes to its Scope 2 emissions accounting approach, there is a need to refocus the standard on real-world impact.
During this recorded webinar you’ll hear from Faraz Ahmad (Amazon), Adam Reeve (REsurety), and Henry Richardson (WattTime) on a discussion for proposed GHG Protocol updates that drive greater emissions reductions. The session provides an overview of existing electricity accounting approaches, a break down of a new impact-centric approach to carbon accounting that climate advocates worldwide are rallying behind, and a discussion on how sustainability leaders can leverage this approach. There’s also a lengthy interactive Q&A after the presentations.
