Registration required.

The Irving Institute's Electricity Grids and Markets Bootcamp is a fun, informative way to gain a better understanding of how our electricity grids and markets work, and what the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) — the agency that regulates them — does. Led by Jay Matson '91, Deputy Director of the Division of Investigations in the Office of Enforcement at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC);  Nancy Bowler '82,  FERC Branch Chief; and Rimvydas Baltaduonis, Associate Professor of Economics at Gettysburg College, this two-day intensive learning experience offers Dartmouth undergraduate students the opportunity to learn directly from the experts! You'll get an overview of electricity markets and FERC's role in regulating them; learn about the ways that companies bend or break the rules; and do a hands-on simulation that will give you a better sense of the complexity and challenges involved in running and regulating the grid system that is so critical to daily life in the United States.
