In this episode, our Electricity Law Initiative director, Ari Peskoe, speaks with Scott Hempling, adjunct professor at the Georgetown University Law Center. They discuss Scott’s new book, Regulating Mergers and Acquisitions of the U.S. Electric Utilities: Industry Concentration and Corporate Complication. Scott has also written about FERC’s review of utility merger applications in a 2018 Energy Law Journal Article entitled Inconsistent with the Public Interest: FERC’s Three Decades of Deference to Electricity Consolidation. Note: we recorded this episode in early November, 2020.
