6th Annual Climate and Energy Law Symposium
|Event Start Date||Friday, November 7, 2014|
Mother Rosalie Hill Hall Warren Auditorium
|Event Start Time||8:00 am - 5:00 pm|
On Friday, November 7, 2014, the University of San Diego School of Law will host its Sixth Annual Climate & Energy Law Symposium. The theme of our 2014 Climate & Energy Law Symposium is “Innovative Regulatory and Business Models in a Changing Electric Industry.”
Regulatory frameworks and business models for electric utilities developed decades ago, and the fundamentals of the landscape are changing. Public policy, technological, and economic shifts are undermining the logic of the current system. Policies to encourage energy efficiency, increase renewable energy production, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions are changing the context in which the industry operates. Technological innovations, including distributed photovoltaics, smart meters, and energy storage are enabling customers to understand and control their energy needs. Slower economic growth, increased efficiency, and more distributed generation are contributing to slower load growth. The confluence of these factors presents challenges and opportunities for the electric industry.
At the event academic and policy experts will analyze and assess three aspects of this complex issue.
