Visiting Scholar Meredith Fowlie explores if regulatory regimes are up to the task of coordinating an efficient and equitable climate transition.

Event Summary

Many of the industries on the front lines of the climate transition are subject to extensive economic regulation. Are these regulatory regimes up to the task of coordinating an efficient and equitable climate transition? UC Berkeley economist Meredith Fowlie will discuss how economic regulation in key industries (such as electricity, natural gas, and insurance) is being tested by climate-related pressures. She will also talk about opportunities for regulatory innovation and some design challenges ahead.
