Electricity Law Initiative
The electricity sector is subject to comprehensive regulation through a collaborative federal-state framework. This legal architecture was written generations ago, and many assumptions embedded in these century-old laws no longer hold true.
The Electricity Law Initiative of the Environmental & Energy Law Program supports the development of state and federal policies that reflect modern realities and enable a cleaner grid. We look for on the cracks in the electricity sector’s legal foundation that have been exposed by changes in the industry’s structure and available technologies.
