Late on August 3, the U.S. Senate confirmed both Neil Chatterjee and Rob Powelson to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. AEE put out a statement here, which was covered in RTO Insider. From the article: 

Advanced Energy Economy said it hoped the new commissioners will be receptive to “an energy system that encourages innovation and allows all technologies to compete fairly in wholesale markets while also respecting the right of states to set policy goals of their own.”

“We believe that market rules should not lock in old technologies at the expense of newer ones that can do more for less,” the group continued in a statement. “With a quorum restored at FERC and two more nominations pending, we look forward to working with the commissioners to remove all barriers to advanced energy technologies competing in wholesale electricity markets.”
