Senior Advisor Susan Tierney Discusses Carbon Pricing Report on NYISO Podcast
October 31, 2019
An Analysis Group team prepared a report for the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) that analyzed the impacts of a carbon pricing mechanism on New York’s wholesale electricity markets and the role that a carbon price could play in helping the state meet its ambitious clean energy goals. Senior Advisor Susan Tierney, one of the report’s coauthors, joined NYISO’s podcast, Power Trends, to discuss the report. Speaking with Kevin Lanahan, NYISO’s vice president of external affairs and corporate communications, Dr. Tierney explained how carbon pricing works, the function of price signals and wholesale markets in advancing state-mandated decarbonization goals, and the role technology can play in these efforts.
