PURA 101



Year: 2020

Topics: Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA)

Organizer: PACE and CTEN

The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority is a powerful entity in the lives and livelihoods of CT residents and businesses, and yet most of us know very little about what it does and how it works. The CTEnergyNetwork was very honored to have PURA chairman Marissa P Gillett as our keynote speaker. Chairman Gillett has extensive background in energy storage and in greenhouse gas emission reduction programs. She has infused CT’s energy policy-making with a new vision for the ways that rates and services of Connecticut’s investor-owned electricity, natural gas, water and telecommunication companies are regulated.

The presentations were as follows:

Chairman Gillett presents PURA 101 and an Overview of Grid Modernization

PURA Director, Utility Programs and Initiatives Joshua Ryor presents on Energy Storage;

PURA Supervisor of the Clean and Affordable Energy Unit Stefanie Koehane presents on Electric Vehicles

Joshua Ryor returns to present on Innovation in the Regulatory Sandbox.
