On this episode of Raising Your Antenna, we are thrilled to welcome former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Neil Chatterjee for an insightful discussion on grid transformation and regulatory innovation in light of the Inflation Reduction Act. Chairman
Chatterjee formerly served as Commissioner and Chairman of FERC, where he championed several strategic initiatives, including streamlining and improving FERC’s liquified natural gas application review and approval process, bolstering power grid reliability and resilience, and boosting renewable resources’ ability to compete in regional power markets and for the reduction of carbon emissions.
Prior to his time at the Commission, Chairman Chatterjee worked as a policy reformer who broke down market barriers for the entrance of new energy technologies – particularly low-carbon energy systems. He formerly served as Policy Advisor to Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), where he aided in the passage of major energy, highway and agriculture legislation. His background also includes roles at National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), the Republican Conference, and the House Ways & Means Committee.
Today, Chairman Chatterjee serves as Senior Advisor to Hogan Lovells in Washington, DC and as a Senior Policy Advisor for the Climate Leadership Council.
Join the discussion with Chairman Chatterjee where we’ll cover:
- Bolstering grid reliability and resiliency in light of IRA investment and the impact on the U.S. energy system
- Removing market barriers for the entrance of new clean energy technologies
- Building a future of nonpartisan energy policies to move the United States and global climate action forward
