The EEMAC will also discuss and vote on the formation of subcommittees to provide reports on certain issues related to the two topics discussed during the meeting.

“I am very excited to hold the first Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee (EEMAC) meeting under my sponsorship and especially to make history by hosting the first EEMAC meeting outside of Washington, DC in the Sooner State,” said Commissioner Mersinger. “I am looking forward to discussions on the innerworkings of the physical energy market, the increased use of metals for energy production, and how energy security and transition risks are impacting CFTC regulated markets. Through these discussions, I hope EEMAC can help the CFTC pursue policies that promote reliable energy supplies and stable energy prices for all Americans.”

These Advisory Committees facilitate communication between the Commission and market participants, other regulators, and academics. The views, opinions, and information expressed by the Advisory Committees are solely those of the respective Advisory Committee and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Commission, its staff, or the U.S. government.
