Not enough attention has been paid to renewable energy infrastructure development critical to ensure successful project development for wind, biomass, solar, biofuels, geothermal, distributed generation, and waste management projects. With almost $13 trillion slated to be spent in the upcoming decade on energy supply and infrastructure, the Conference sought to elucidate the type of integrated Federal, State, and Wall Street support for infrastructure, we need to see:
- Renewable energy and efficiency supplies growing in the mix
- An estimated market clearing price for carbon
- Increased renewable infrastructure investment
The American University Washington College of Law (“WCL”) and the Renewable & Distributed Generation Resources Committee of the ABA Section of Environment, Energy and Resources co-sponsored this conference to evaluate the issues surrounding renewable infrastructure development. The national Conference was held at WCL on September 10, 2009. Podcasts of the panel discussions and lunch keynote speech by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) Chairman JonWellinghoff are available through the WCL podcast directory.
