State Regulatory Practitioner Award

The award recognizes innovation and superior advocacy by members of the state utility regulatory bar. The award is consistent with the committee's goal to be a resource to lawyers who focus their practice on state energy regulatory matters. The award will be presented at EBA's Mid-Year meeting in Washington, DC. Prior recipients of the award include Ben Stone and James Van Nostrand. The most recent recipient of the award is the Honorable Sonny Popowsky, recently retired Consumer Advocate for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

  • State representation is a predominant part of the nominee's total practice;
  • The nominee's state practice and participation in the state energy regulatory process has produced significant results or recognition;
  • The nominee's state practice reflects enhanced professional competence of the practice of energy law; and
  • The nominee must be a member of the EBA.
