Electricity Law Initiative
The electricity sector is subject to comprehensive regulation through an interlocked 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 looks for cracks in the electricity sector’s legal foundation that have been exposed by changes in the industry’s structure and available technologies. We support the development of state and federal policies that reflect the industry’s evolution and enable a cleaner grid.
