Conference Description

The United States’ energy system is in a period of increasingly rapid transition, bringing with it exciting opportunities as well as daunting challenges, from incentivizing emerging renewable energy sources like community solar and offshore wind generation to regulating breakthrough technologies such as hydrogen, carbon capture pipelines and infrastructure, and advanced nuclear power technologies; developing new electric grid and transmission infrastructure and empowering communities historically disadvantaged from past and present energy sector operations. 

This forum—the first ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources energy transition conference— seeks to explore these issues from both energy and environmental perspectives, offering a high-level look at grid fundamentals before digging into the key challenges posed by this energy transition: how to coordinate between new and existing stakeholders, balance environmental goals against technological limitations, secure the grid against natural and cyber threats, and better engage with and serve the interests of end-consumers.

The Conference will help lawyers and other decision makers better serve their clients in the public, private, and NGO sectors through both educating on fundamentals and providing insight into how the energy transition is rapidly shaping the legal and policy landscapes for energy and environmental law.
