About the Forum

The 2021 Michigan Forum will be held on Friday, February 19, 2021. This year’s forum will bring the state’s vision for 2021 and beyond into focus and feature Commissioners and leading staff members of the Michigan Public Service Commission. Other speakers will represent a broad spectrum of public, private, and academic perspectives as well as the evolving consumer advocacy community.

The Forum is a one-day discussion-oriented conference on current issues designed specifically by the Institute of Public Utilities for the Michigan Public Service Commission (PSC), the Michigan State Legislature, the Offices of the Governor and Attorney General, consumer and environmental advocates, utility industry representatives, and others interested in Michigan regulatory policy.  The Forum is sponsored by the Institute of Public Utilities (IPU) in partnership and developed in collaboration with the Commissioners and staff of the Michigan PSC.
