Ahmad Faruqui Named Keynote Speaker for New York University School of Law’s Forum on the Reforming Energy Vision Initiative

Brattle principal Ahmad Faruqui will deliver the keynote address at the upcoming forum, “On the REV Agenda: The Role of Time-Variant Pricing,” a program co-hosted by the New York Department of Public Service, the Environmental Defense Fund, and the Institute for Policy Integrity at the New York University School of Law. The event will take place at NYU’s School of Law on March 31, 2015 in New York, NY.

Time-variant electricity pricing gives customers greater control over their electricity bills by allowing them to modify their energy use patterns based on prices. It helps customers form a better understanding of the true cost of generating and delivering electricity, which can vary significantly. Time-variant pricing also helps utilities control costs, which may change depending on variation in electricity demand that occurs at certain times in the day.

The forum will focus on how this type of pricing can contribute to realizing the goals of New York’s “Reforming the Energy Vision” (REV) initiative, which aims to create a cleaner, more efficient, and more reliable electricity system. Attendees will include key industry players from across the country, who will discuss their experiences and lessons learned from time-variant pricing.

Sanem Sergici of Brattle will participate in the panel discussion "Time Variant Pricing: Issues and Options," which will address topics such as low-income customers, environmental impacts, and related technologies. Brattle academic advisor Timothy Brennan, a Senior Fellow with Resources for the Future, will also be presenting.
