The 2024 Enforcers and Defenders Forum will take place on Wednesday, March 20 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at Jones Day office in D.C.

This popular event provides a forum to discuss current issues related to enforcement and compliance in the energy sector. Our goal for this event is to share perspectives from regulators with enforcement responsibilities as well as attorneys who work with energy market participants on enforcement and compliance matters.

Enforcers Panel

One of the highlights of this annual program is the Enforcers Panel, featuring key representatives from FERC, CFTC, NERC, and PJM’s IMM. This year, our panel of enforcers will cover recent changes in settlement policy, including FERC’s new approach to streamlined settlements, and the increased focus on extreme weather, cybersecurity, and other reliability issues.
