What: Climate and Energy Law Symposium
When: April 9th (Pre-Symposium Workshop April 8th 2:00-5:30 pm)
Where: University of San Diego
The University of San Diego's Second Annual Climate & Energy Law Symposium on April 9th will explore various regulatory approaches being proposed and adopted to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Panels will focus on how innovative regulatory instruments such as carbon taxes and emissions trading complement, displace, and otherwise interact with traditional “direct” regulatory approaches such as setting and enforcing emissions standards.
This year’s Symposium will include a half-day pre-symposium workshop on April 8th that will explore how California’s environmental protection laws, such as the California Environmental Quality Act, affect the permitting and siting process for energy projects that could help California achieve its ambitious greenhouse gas reduction targets.
The symposium is co-hosted by the Energy Policy Initiatives Center and the San Diego Journal of Climate and Energy Law. Scholarly articles written for the symposium will be published in the journal's second issue.
This year's Presenting Sponsor is Sempra Energy. Our Lead Sponsor is NRG Energy West.
