VIDEO: Ensuring Reliability and a Fair Energy Marketplace
In response to the Western Energy Crisis, the Enron scandal and a historic East Coast blackout, Congress granted broad new authority to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in 2005. Armed with this enforcement authority and additional analytical resources, the FERC has in recent years engaged in high profile enforcement efforts intended to bolster both energy availability and confidence in a fair marketplace. FERC Commissioner Tony Clark provided his thoughts on lessons learned since the passage of Energy Policy Act of 2005, and recent FERC actions that illustrate the evolution of FERC enforcement since the passage of that pioneering Act.
