American Bar Association – Section on Environment, Energy, and Resources Telephonic Program Call
As the importance of renewable energy in the power generation mix grows, there are an increasing number of contexts in which its deployment in conjunction with storage will enhance the number and character of services, the potential number of active parties, and the possibilities for enhancement of distributed energy applications. Major issues related to the exercise of federal and state jurisdiction under existing and proposed laws have arisen, which will be of increasing importance as the capabilities of storage technology management and the possibilities for its integration with renewable energy resources continues to accelerate. This program will highlight three key areas currently illustrative of this point: federal and state initiatives to encourage energy storage; RTO implementation of FERC order no. 841: energy storage development issues; the challenges and opportunities for utilities presented by energy storage integration.

Federal Auction for Offshore Wind Leases in Northeast Set Record High
On December 13 and 14, 2018, the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) conducted an auction for three offshore wind power parcels in Massachusetts. The auction not only broke the record  for number of companies bidding, but also for being the highest grossing offshore wind lease sale. The promotion of federal offshore land auctions and positive statements  from both the Secretary of the Interior and the acting head of BOEM suggest that the Trump Administration remains committed to developing U.S. offshore wind resources.Read More
