Join the Environmental Markets Association and our ever expanding attendance at the second Regional Thought Leader Round Table of the 2016 Series. Listen, discuss and meet with policy makers and traders as we dive into a half day of sessions focused on existing and new environmental commodities, the Clean Power Plan and State Implementation Plans, dealing with RECs, cross-border power supply issues  and energy efficiency tags. This free flowing format will include presentations, but will rely heavily on the open discussions between our thought leaders and attendees.
