    Convergence of Grid Modernization and Sustainability Issues: Electric Vehicle Power Infrastructure

    Thursday, April 26, 2018
    12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Eastern
    Committee Program Call

    Program Description:
    The coming emergence of the national use of electric vehicles ("EVs") has the support of manufacturers, utilities, consumers, developers and proponents of sustainable climate change improvement. The current unavailability of necessary supporting power infrastructure for EVs presents a critical challenge to its realization to all these stakeholders. The technology is progressing rapidly on all fronts, and the legal issues have already begun to be come into focus.

    The key legal issues affecting the resilient development, technology integration, finance regulation and environmental planning for this potentially significant contributor to a decarbonized environment include:

    1. How can the potential for grid modernization and incorporation of innovative technologies like storage and renewables be best tapped by regulators though ratemaking and other regulatory tools?

    2. Who will own the process; be required to invest in and pay for the costs of its development and operation, and may share in the benefits from its operation?

    3. Which governmental funding, research, exercises of authority at different jurisdictional levels and which private initiatives and governance will best facilitate its sound future financial and environmental development in the energy "interstate highways" and "smart cities" of the future.

    The expert speakers' diverse perspectives will provide lawyers as practitioners and policy makers with the informed insights necessary for participation in the shaping of two basic industries, the fostering of numerous innovative entrepreneurial efforts, and the fostering of environmental resiliency.
