Policy + Pints: Your Exclusive Briefing on a Clean Electricity Standard


A professor, a senator, and two directors walk into a room. No, this isn’t the start of a bad joke. Our next Policy + Pints hangout is just around the corner!

This time, I’ll be joined (virtually) by three very special guests:

  1. U.S. Senator Tina Smith (D-MN)
  2. Marcela Mulholland, Political Director for Data for Progress
  3. Yvonne McIntyre, Director of Federal Electricity and Utility Policy at NRDC

Like usual, we’ll connect over pints1—and this time we’ll also connect the dots between the American Jobs Plan and a Clean Electricity Standard (CES). RSVP now to tell us you’ll be there on Wednesday, June 2 at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET!

? Policy + Pints: CES Edition ? 

w/ Sen. Tina Smith, Marcela Mulholland, Yvonne McIntyre, and Dr. Leah Stokes

Wednesday, June 2

2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET


By the end of this hangout, you’ll be able to tell your friends what a Clean Electricity Standard is2; how Congress can pass a CES as part of the American Jobs Plan; and how a CES is a proven, practical, and popular approach to jumpstart our economy and the clean energy future. Plus, it’s not every day you get to virtually clink glasses (or tea mugs) with policy experts—and this time, a policymaker!

Grab your favorite beverage and join us Wednesday at 2 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. ET to learn how we’re going to get a CES passed—and why we can’t afford to wait.


Hope to see you there!

Webinar Invite | The Biden Administration’s Climate Agenda: A Conversation with Gina McCarthy | May 18


Tuesday, May 18, 2021 | 12:00-12:45 p.m. EDT
Zoom Webinar

During last month’s Leaders Summit on Climate, President Biden signaled the United States’ resolve to find solutions to climate change. The Administration’s new target — the “Nationally Determined Contribution” (NDC) — calls for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 50-52% from 2005 levels by 2030. What measures will the Administration prioritize to deliver these results? Can it secure bipartisan support for related infrastructure investments? How will Washington encourage large-scale deployment of zero-carbon energy and cushion the impact on workers in legacy industries?

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy at the 7th Annual Columbia Global Energy Summit as we welcome Gina McCarthy, National Climate Advisor at the White House, to discuss the Biden Administration’s climate agenda in a conversation moderated by Jason Bordoff, Co-Founding Dean, Climate School, Columbia University; Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA; and Professor of Professional Practice in International and Public Affairs, Columbia University.

This webinar will be hosted via Zoom. Advance registration is required. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with access details. The event will be recorded and the video recording will be added to our website following the event.

This event is open to press, and registration is required to attend.
