Technological innovations, scientific advancements, and federal policies aimed at promoting national deployment of renewable energy resources have the potential to transform this country’s energy generation and distribution future – one that includes increased reliance and incorporation of wind energy and solar energy into our overall energy mix. Distributed generation resources are enabling power to reach isolated, “islanded” communities, both at home and abroad. Federal and state initiatives, such as the Clean Power Plan and New York’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) will also have important ramifications for co-generation and distributed generation. However, legal, political, and policy issues exist that could potentially impede the implementation and proliferation of renewable and distributed energy measures. These issues present interesting questions, as well as opportunities, for practicing lawyers, law students, and others with an interest in energy law. Our experts will share their practical business and legal experience with respect to these cutting-edge issues. Please join us for a two-panel symposium co-sponsored by the Renewable, Alternative, and Distributed Energy Resources (RADER) Committee and Columbia Law School’s Environmental Law Society (ELS) to explore these issues of growing importance.
