Please join the Payne Institute for Public Policy at the Colorado School of Mines as we welcome Alice K. Jackson, President, Xcel Energy – Colorado, presenting at webinar titled Considerations in Building an Economic Low Carbon Electric System on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 from 1:00pm – 2:00pm (MT).
Utilities, states, and nations around the world are focused on how to drive carbon out of the electric system not only for existing electric customers, but also because these same entities view electrification of other industries to be a key to combating climate change. In this discussion, we will explore some of the considerations that must be taken into account when building a low carbon electric system from the driver seat of a utility. What are the socialized economic impact considerations as well as the direct economic impacts on communities and individuals?
