Renewables in the Transition to the Modern Energy Economy: How It Will Affect Today’s Legislative Issues

Morrison & Foerster's Cleantech Group is a sponsor of the monthly ABA & ACORE (American Council on Renewable Energy) Renewable Energy Seminar and Teleconference Series. Please join us in our New York office for this teleconference event.

In the energy economy that has existed for the past decade, renewables relied on direct incentives and favorable rates to create the incentive for their development.  Renewables are expected to enjoy a host of supports aimed at shifting the energy playing field in favor of many of their characteristics.  But how will the emerging core trends leading our nation into the modern energy economy affect renewable power generation? 

This April teleconference will explore how the Modern Energy Economy will be shaped by these core/mega trends:

  1. Incorporation of Social Costs into Energy Economics (i.e., environmental markets);
  2. Regionalism, Federalism, and Energy Independence;
  3. Globalization, both waxing and waning; and
  4. Capital Markets Restructuring and what the implications are for renewables’ development. 

The distinguished panel will first set the stage by reviewing what those trends are, and then will specifically consider  not only their impacts on near-term public policy formulation (RPS, ENERGY, CLIMATE, FINANCE) but also how the future of these policies may assume different shapes as the Modern Energy Economy comes into clearer focus.
