In a story from E&E News [subscription required], Debra Kahn details carbon-trading discussions from California Air Resources Board Chairwoman, among others, at AEE’s Pathway to 2050 Conference on August 20. From the article:
"We're collaborating with other states," [Nichols] said yesterday. "We have not put forth a manifesto on what a regional power market would look like, but we've been very actively participating in discussions that are actually being led by Governor Ritter and his team at Colorado State, working quietly at the staff level and trying to build support for some ideas that will really work."
Nichols was speaking at an event [Pathway to 2050] put on by Advanced Energy Economy (AEE).
