More Than Science: Asset Managers Have Their Role to Play in the Energy Transition


The energy transition away from fossil fuel is a three-legged stool - public policy (legislation), rule-making, and rate-making. Asset managers have a key role to play when it comes to evaluating life-cycle costs, stranded value (if investments happen too fast), and understanding risk-based tradeoffs.


JD Solomon will discuss this important topic on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at the North American Conference of the Institute of Asset Management (IAM). Registration information can be found at https://theiam.org/events/iam-north-american-conference-2021/


JD will be providing his personal perspectives as a program developer, asset manager, and member of the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission. North Carolina has been a leading state in terms of renewable and clean energy for more than two decades. In 2021, two radically different proposals, one legislative and one rule-making, were placed in the public domain for moving forward through 2050.
