Energy in California: New Policy Drivers, Opportunities and Challenges

Law Seminars International

Marriot Union Square — San Francisco, CA

November 12, 2012

California's energy industry continues to be dominated by environmental objectives, creating new challenges and opportunities. VNF's Kyle Danish and Doug Smith both spoke at this conference.

The implementation of AB32, achievement of a 33% renewable portfolio standard and rising concern about the costs of these programs dominate generation and transmission developments. Increased emphasis on safety injects new requirements. In turn, these policy considerations create new demands on practitioners and market participants in such areas as matching generation to transmission and obtaining generator interconnections. Awareness of both the leading policy trends and of the practical requirements is critical for success in California energy markets.

This conference is a comprehensive discussion of these issues featuring insight from industry leaders, regulators, policy makers and leading experts on the local, state and national levels.
