PODCAST: Energy Economist
Dr. Susan Tierney on Benefits of Carbon Pricing

Dr. Susan Tierney, renowned energy expert with the Analysis Group and former head of policy at the U.S. Department of Energy, recently completed a study with Paul Hibbard of our proposal to add a “social cost” of carbon dioxide emissions to New York’s wholesale energy markets.

Carbon Pricing in Wholesale Energy Markets: Frequently Asked Questions

Carbon pricing refers to the introduction of a “social cost” of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions into New York’s competitive wholesale energy markets. The NYISO and many of its stakeholders believe instituting carbon pricing would help the state meet its clean energy goals faster and more cost-effectively, while reducing emissions and maintaining grid reliability.
