Start Preamble December 22, 2004.

Take notice that a technical conference will be held concerning issues associated with the above-captioned rulemaking proceeding on market based rates. The technical conference will take place on January 27 and 28, 2005, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (EST), in the Commission Meeting Room at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, 888 First Street, NE., Washington, DC. Members of the Commission will attend the conference. An agenda will be issued at a later time.

The topic of the conference will be issues associated with generation market power and affiliate abuse, two of the four prongs the Commission uses to determine market power in electric markets. The first day of the conference will consider whether, and if so to what extent, the Commission should modify the interim generation market power screens adopted by the Commission and the appropriate mitigation for those found to have generation market power.[1] The second day of the technical conference will address issues of affiliate abuse and reciprocal dealing, including any mitigation measures the Commission should consider.

The Commission is now soliciting nominations for speakers at the technical conference. Those persons wishing to nominate speakers should do so using the electronic link:​whats-new/​registration/​mbr-01-27-speaker-form.asp Such nominations must be made before the close of business, Friday, January 7, 2005.
