Isabel Carey to Speak on Transmission Revitalization in ELI Webinar on February 27
Marten Associate Isabel Carey will be speaking on an Environmental Law Institute Webinar on February 27, 2023 from 1:30pm - 2:30pm EST titled "Building a New Grid Without New Legislation: A Path to Revitalizing Federal Transmission Authorities." A description of the webinar can be found below, as well as a link to sign up for the webinar.
This webinar is based on an article which was originally published in Ecology Law Quarterly and will be republished in the 2023 Environmental Law and Policy Annual Review, titled "Building a New Grid without New Legislation: A path to Revitalizing Federal Transmission Authorities."
Long-distance, high-voltage transmission is central to integrating renewable generation at a sufficient scale to enable the United States to decarbonize its electric system. Please join us for a discussion with Justin Gundlach and Isabel Carey on their proposals for how the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission can use existing authorities to advance transmission development—even in the absence of congressional action.
