CFTC’s Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee to Meet April 10 in Kansas City

March 27, 2024

CFTC Commissioner Summer K. Mersinger, sponsor of the Energy and Environmental Markets Advisory Committee (EEMAC), today announced that the EEMAC will hold a public meeting from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (CDT) on Wednesday, April 10 at the University of Missouri – Kansas City in Kansas City, Mo. Members of the public may also attend the meeting virtually or in person, if space permits.

At this meeting, the EEMAC will continue its discussion on the federal prudential financial regulators’ proposed rules implementing Basel III and the implications for and impact on the derivatives market. There will also be presentations and discussions on the state of crude oil markets and the future of power markets. Finally, the two EEMAC subcommittees will offer updates on their continued work related to traditional energy infrastructure and metals markets. A formal agenda for this meeting is forthcoming. For agenda updates and more information about this advisory committee, including its members, please visit EEMAC at

“The last few EEMAC meetings focused on the metal and mineral markets and the crucial role of those commodities in the transition to renewable energy,” said Commissioner Mersinger. “I am looking forward to the discussion at this meeting about longstanding, traditional energy markets— crude oil and power markets—and how the state of those markets ultimately affect the price of energy and the cost to U.S. consumers.”

Members of the public may watch a live webcast or listen to the meeting via conference call using a domestic or international number to connect to a live, listen-only audio feed. People requiring special accommodations to attend the meeting because of a disability should notify Lauren Fulks, the EEMAC Secretary, at (816) 787-6297 or [email protected].
