Panel I: Telecommunications- Lessons Learned

Panel II: Energy- Where Have We Been & What have we Learned?
The second panel will discuss regulatory reform efforts to date in the energy sector – both across the country and in Minnesota.  Speakers from California and Texas will discuss approaches taken and lessons learned in other states, while a third panelist reviews Minnesota's efforts to date.  This panel will be moderated by Phyllis Reha, PAR Energy Solutions LLC. 
Panel III: Energy- Where Are We Going?
Our final panel will pull out their crystal balls and discuss the future of regulatory reform, focused on the energy sector.  Again, our panel will provide both a national and a local perspective in addressing the opportunities and potential pitfalls in alternative regulatory models.  Commissioner Dan Lipschultz, Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, will lead what should be a lively and interesting discussion.
