ScottMadden consultant to discuss Clean Power Plan at GenForum

Todd Williams, a partner at ScottMadden Management Consultants, will discuss the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Clean Power Plan at the one-day PennWell GenForum conference Dec. 7 in Las Vegas.

Williams, a co-leader in ScottMadden’s fossil practice, will look at the implications of the EPA proposal to have states draft implementation plans to reduce power sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions 32% by 2030.

His presentation will offer an overview of the requirements and implications of the Clean Power Plan as well as a look at legislation and legal challenges that have been filed in connection with the controversial rule.

Prior to joining ScottMadden, Williams founded and operated The Landmark Group, a real estate brokerage firm headquartered in Beijing, China. He earned an M.B.A. with honors from the Goizueta School of Business at Emory University, a B.A. in political science from the University of the South, and a certificate of honors in intensive Mandarin Chinese language study from Anhui Teachers University in Wuhu, Anhui Province, China.

With offices in Atlanta and Raleigh, ScottMadden has practice areas that include Energy, Clean Tech & Sustainability.

GenForum is a one-day conference, organized by GenerationHub, which will explore how the power sector is coping with changing dynamics that include the Energy Imbalance Market (EIM) and the EPA Clean Power Plan. GenForum is one of the co-located events for PennWell’s POWER-GEN International. Both events are being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Other speakers already on the program for the event include Department of Energy Loan Programs Office (LPO) Director Mark McCall; Peabody Energy Global Energy Analytics Vice President Jacob Williams; and NV Energy Renewable Energy Programs Director Jesse Murray.
