Transmission and Transport of Energy in the Western U.S. and Canada: A Law and Policy Road Map

I am delighted to announce that a collection of short essays resulting from the inaugural Idaho A Final 2 Color LogoSymposium on Energy in the West is now available on SSRN and will be published this fall in the Idaho Law Review.  The topic of the Symposium was "Transmission and Transport of Energy in the Western U.S. and Canada: A Law and Policy Road Map," which also forms the common theme for this essay collection.

The collection includes great contributions by KK Duvivier, Troy Rule, Melissa Powers, Sam Kalen, Tara Righetti, Nate Larsen, Nick Lawton, and Amelia Schlusser.  Topics include: building a resilient legal architecture for western energy production; regulating natural gas flaring; transmission planning for wind energy; utilities and rooftop solar; special considerations for western states and the Clean Power Plan; the Clean Power Plan's implications for the western grid; siting renewable energy on public lands; and implications of utility reform in New York and Hawaii for the Northwest.

The 2nd Idaho Symposium on Energy in the West will be held in Spring, 2016.  Watch for event details and more great scholarly contributions for understanding energy in the west!
