Events

  • Webinar: Getting the Value of Distributed Energy Resources Right

    Led by Energy Policy Director Dr. Burcin Unel and Senior Attorney Justin Gundlach, our webinar discussed the different values that distributed energy resources can provide to the grid, consumers, and society. We described how these values could be incorporated in compensation through "value stacking," a promising solution to current policy debates on net metering policies, and provided suggestions and a roadmap for implementing this approach. 

  • Corporate Climate Risk: Assessment, Disclosure, and Action

    This event has been postponed. We’re hoping to reschedule in the coming months.

    The Institute for Policy Integrity and the Volatility and Risk Institute at NYU Stern School of Business are hosting a conference that will focus on how market actors are responding to the risks of climate change and what techniques or regulations are needed to adapt.

  • Book Talk with Richard Cordray

    This event has been postponed. We’re hoping to reschedule in the coming months.

    Policy Integrity is hosting a book talk and reception for Richard Cordray’s Watchdog, which details how strong consumer protections can benefit individuals, safeguard the marketplace, and establish a new baseline of economic fairness. Cordray, who served as the first director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, will discuss the book and related consumer protection questions with Richard Revesz.

  • Carbon Pricing in Wholesale Energy Markets

    Video and slides from the conference are now available. The Institute for Policy Integrity and Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions hosted a conference in Washington, D.C., focusing on the different approaches for carbon pricing in wholesale energy markets.

  • The Administration’s Recent Tailpipe Rule: Law and Policy

    On September 19, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a final rule to determine that California may not adopt or enforce regulations of carbon dioxide emissions from motor vehicles. This rule upends nearly 50 years of clean air policy and disrupts an area of climate policy that has been relatively stable for almost a decade. The state of California and 22 other states, along with the cities of Washington DC, Los Angeles and New York, immediately filed suit. In this webinar, panelists will examine the legal and policy issues that this agency action raises.

  • Paying For It: Estimating and Responding to the Costs of Climate Inaction

    Policymakers and researchers are working to better understand how climate change will affect key sectors of the economy, how we can best adapt to these impacts, and how to communicate the economic urgency of the crisis. At the Institute for Policy Integrity’s annual conference, experts and policymakers from around the country discussed how we can better estimate, prepare for, and communicate the high cost of inaction.

  • Discerning Experts – Book Launch

    Policy Integrity is hosting the launch of a new book, “Discerning Experts: The Practices of Scientific Assessment for Environmental Policy.” Written by Michael Oppenheimer, Naomi Oreskes, Dale Jamieson, Keynyn Brysse, Jessica O’Reilly, Matthew Shindell, and Milena Wazeck, the book assesses how scientists deliberate and decide on the facts that guide environmental policy and action.

    The event will include a discussion with the authors and Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Dan Fagin, and a reception afterwards. It is co-sponsored by NYU School of Law and NYU’s Department of Environmental Studies.
