Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Chairman Richard Glick and his colleagues will appear before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee today to discuss FERC’s role in the continuing transformation of the nation’s energy markets.
The Chairman and Commissioners James P. Danly, Allison Clements and Mark C. Christie will testify at the hearing at 10 a.m. ET.
Chairman Glick’s testimony focuses on five priority areas of FERC’s work: building the transmission grid of the future; modernizing electricity market design; updating FERC’s natural gas certificate Policy Statement; safeguarding the reliability of the electric grid; and facilitating a more inclusive decision-making process.
“The Commission’s job is not to pick winners and losers,” Glick said. “But we do have a role in eliminating barriers to a technology’s participation in wholesale markets.”
