Morrison & Foerster is sponsoring ACORE’s 2019 Renewable Energy Grid Forum, which will confront the business opportunities, policy and regulatory issues, and technology challenges associated with integrating high-penetration renewable electricity on the grid. Uniting dealmakers, policymakers, and systems experts, the forum will advance efforts for a modernized grid that values flexibility, reliability and resilience.

Partner Susan Mac Cormac will be moderating the “Optimizing Buyers' Impact: How Corporations Can Help Decarbonize the Grid” panel, where large end users and power sector experts will explore policy, regulatory and technology strategies that corporate buyers can adopt to promote deep decarbonization of the grid. Other topics include:

  • Evaluating the carbon impact of purchasing strategies: hourly carbon accounting methods and location-specific analyses
  • Opportunities to leverage C&I influence for broadly beneficial regulatory change
  • Clean technologies and other tools companies can procure to avoid carbon emissions
