9:00 AM - 10:30 AM:  THE HONORABLE KEVIN J. MCINTYRE GENERAL SESSION: The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law: Funding and Siting America's Energy Future

On November 15, 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law.  The $1.2 trillion spending package will spur energy innovation and deployment and is a major tool for the administration to achieve President Biden’s goal of a carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035.  This panel will dive into the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s impact on the energy industry and specifically:

(1) how the administration plans to implement the law and allocate funding to federal, state, and local agencies;

(2) what federal programs were authorized or bolstered by the law;

(3) obstacles the private sector may encounter in seeking to benefit from funding under the law; and

(4) the role attorneys could play in the rollout and implementation process. 

The panel will also take a look to the future at what Congress may do next that could directly impact energy project development.

SESSION 1A: Utility-Broadband Partnerships: Solving the Rural Broadband Access Problem

Billions of dollars of federal funding are being made available for the development and deployment of broadband infrastructure.  Electric utilities are already deploying significant amounts of “middle mile” fiber optic infrastructure for their own communications needs and have had success using these investments to help facilitate high-speed broadband access to unserved and underserved communities. This session will highlight successful electric utility programs to partner with internet service providers and others to deploy fiber, as well as new opportunities for funding and innovative rate structures that help defray costs for companies and customers. Panelists will identify some of the legal and regulatory challenges as well as innovative solutions to address them.

SESSION 1B: Confronting Climate Change Under FERC’s New Natural Gas Pipeline Policy Statements

In February 2022, FERC announced that it will consider a proposed natural gas infrastructure project’s impact on climate change as part of its public interest determination under Sections 3 and 7 of the Natural Gas Act (NGA) with the issuance of the Updated Policy Statement on Certification of New Interstate Natural Gas Facilities and the Interim Policy Statement on the Consideration of Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Natural Gas Infrastructure Project Reviews. The new and revised policies specify that a proposed project’s environmental effects, including reasonably foreseeable greenhouse gas emissions that may be attributable to the project and the project’s impact on environmental justice communities, now will become part of FERC’s balancing test for whether a project is required by the public convenience and necessity under NGA Section 7 or in the public interest under NGA Section 3. The policies also address how FERC will apply the National Environmental Policy Act to gas projects.  A panel of experts will break down how pipeline developers, customers, environmental NGOs, and other stakeholders are adapting to the new policy and what this means for the future of natural gas infrastructure.

SESSION 2A: 25 Years with Open Access and Order 888 - Where Are we Now, Who's Watching, and What is Needed Next?

The industry has had 25 years with the landmark transmission open access reforms instituted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Order 888 transformed the industry and non-discriminatory access to the transmission system. The industry is undergoing a new and significant transformation in its resource mix and available technologies. Both independently, and under FERC directives, RTOs have increased customer transmission access opportunities for emerging technologies such as demand response, distributed energy resources and storage. FERC has also charged Independent Market Monitors in RTO to identify ineffective market rules and tariff provisions, identify potential anticompetitive behavior by market participants, and provide the comprehensive market analysis critical for informed policy advancement. Such a role does not currently exist in the non-RTO markets.

What advancements have non-RTO transmission providers made to accommodate new resource technologies? Is the current Open Access Transmission Tariff (OATT) sufficient for provide non-discriminatory transmission services by Public Utilities relating to these new and emerging resources? What value might an Independent Market Monitor provide in non-RTO regions? For instance, could IMM State of the Market Reports in non-RTO regions provide customers and state regulators with improved information? Could an IMM help ensure transmission services are adequately being provided to customers. How could an IMM outside of an RTO be structured? Are there lessons from RTOs for improvement in stakeholder participation and governance in non-RTO regions.

SESSION 2B: An Introduction to FERC's Office of Public Participation

This panel will provide an overview of Congress’s and FERC’s authorization and establishment of the OPP.  The panel will discuss the OPP’s core responsibilities and what the Office hopes to achieve.  We will hear the perspective of consumer advocates, energy developers, environmental advocates and the OPP itself on how FERC can level the playing field between the public and a project applicant. Panelists will discuss

(1) the resources that the Office is expected to make available to the public and how they may be accessed; and

(2) how the Office can improve stakeholder involvement - including how industry and the public may interact with the Office and vice versa.

9:00 AM - 10:30 AM: GENERAL SESSION: Energy Justice and Clean Energy Infrastructure: Tensions and Opportunities for Evolving Development Goals

As the evolution towards a cleaner energy future continues, one area of recent focus has been how the principles and policies of energy justice (EJ) can coexist with the development needs of increased clean energy infrastructure.  Be it offshore wind development, utility scale solar installations, or transmission buildout to connect it all, there has been much thoughtful debate about the best way to ensure that federal and state energy justice goals remain achievable while at the same time allowing for economic and timely development to occur.

This session is designed to provide both a high level understanding of the relevant legal and regulatory considerations as EJ and energy development goals come together, as well as a deeper dive into specific case examples.  We will explore what tensions exist for these two equally important but at times divergent policies, and also the opportunities that can and have presented themselves.  We will explore the rules and regulations that govern these policies, discuss specific examples of where EJ and development have intersected across the nation, and talk about how members of the Energy Bar Association and others can help support and guide the parties involved.

Attendees will leave this session having a better understanding of

A) what EJ rules and regulations exist, and how they are evolving,

B) how EJ policies impact clean energy development, and examples of how this has played out, and

C) where attorneys and others involved in these matters can and should participate in the process.

SESSION 4B: Transmission Interconnection Panel

Enhancements to the interconnection processes under consideration at many of the RTO/ISOs are designed, among other things, to reduce the time needed to completion. But the growth of utility-scale renewable energy projects continues to put pressure on, if not overwhelm, the interconnection queues of these organizations. At the same time, integration of utility-scale renewable energy projects will require substantial transmission facility development in order to transmit the power from remote locations to load centers. The RTO/ISO processes to vet and approve these projects are highly controversial. And the manner in which the significant construction costs will be allocated is equally as controversial.
 

This panel will explore the progress being made at the RTO/ISO to address these complex issues. Representatives of the RTO/ISOs, project developers, state regulators, and consumer advocates will offer their perspectives.

SESSION 5A: Large-Scale Solar Siting: Regulatory and Land Use Considerations

This session will explore the processes for siting and permitting large- (or utility-) scale solar facilities on public and private lands. While regulations on private lands can vary from state-to-state and even county-to-county, attendees will learn about nationwide trends in siting restrictions as well as emerging decommissioning and end-of-life issues in comparison to similar requirements for other energy infrastructure. The session will also address rents, fees, and other commercial issues; non-regulatory siting considerations such as proximity to transmission and interconnection; and secondary land use issues such as agrivoltaics, grazing, pollinator-attracting plant species, and industry best practices.

3:45 PM - 5:15 PM: CLOSING GENERAL SESSION: Challenges and Opportunities in a Decarbonized World

The natural gas industry is in the cross hairs of current state and federal efforts aimed at reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced by the burning of fossil fuels (or decarbonization). While the speed and direction of this path to a “net zero” future is still to be determined, the conventional wisdom is that the impact on gas utility operations and infrastructure will be profound. However, where there is uncertainty, there is also opportunity, and with the right balance of government policy, financial incentives and technology, the industry can be an equal partner in the clean energy transition.
