US Regulation of Energy Infrastructure, Security & Cyber Risk Management: The new “Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act”
January – April 2022 | One Session per Month
The federal government’s new “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” is now law.
In this law, the federal government looks to improve transmission and grid infrastructure, electric vehicle infrastructure, carbon capture infrastructure and other clean energy resources. With the fundamental meaning of infrastructure being, “the basic equipment and structures (such as roads and bridges) that are needed for a country, region, or organization to function properly”, this law affects the entire nation.
This seminar series is designed to help increase your skills in evaluating the complex issues of this new law, focusing on the energy aspects, plus its impacts on energy security and cyber law in the U.S. It is beneficial for those who are involved in the investing, planning, construction, operation, maintenance, decommissioning, as well as regulatory compliance, of energy infrastructure: 1) Accountants & Financial Personnel; 2) Commercial & Business Development Managers; 3) Legal & Regulatory Professionals; 4) Technical & Engineering Management & Staff.
Investment in transmission and changes in siting authority for transmission lines are tools that the federal government is seeking to use to bring renewable energy resources on the grid, lower costs and improve the grid’s overall efficiency and reliability.
The federal government highlights the following improvements in the “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act”:
Likewise, the energy industry is looking to build on carbon capture and storage technological advances in an effort to limit greenhouse gas emissions.
This energy transition seminar series will 1) identify legal frameworks, 2) apply lessons learned, and 3) provide commercial strategies to facilitate the achievable and stretch objectives in the energy transition on specific projects.
