On October 13th, Dunkiel Saunders partner Andy Raubvogel will present at the 2016 Renewable Energy Vermont Conference & Expo, as part of the panel entitled “Shifting Regulatory Landscapes: Impacts on Renewables in Vermont”, along with Kimberly K. Haden of Paul Frank + Collins. The REV2016 conference is an annual convention of leaders in the renewable energy sectors of Vermont, New Hampshire, and Northern New York, hosted by the Renewable Energy Vermont nonprofit trade association.
Andy’s presentation will touch upon the latest developments in Vermont’s legal and regulatory landscape in the renewable energy sector including the Public Service Board’s new rules for net metering and its ongoing rulemaking on sound standards for wind projects; the sale of energy to utilities by small power producers under PURPA; energy planning standards being issued by the Department of Public Service; trends in municipal solar ordinances; and recent Public Service Board and Vermont Supreme Court decisions on renewable siting. The panelists will view these issues through the lens of how/whether Vermont and New England are attaining their renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction goals. Lawyers, developers, and planners should come away with a sense of how the renewable energy market may look once the regulatory dust settles, how to plan strategically, and what may be on the horizon for Vermont’s new legislative and gubernatorial leadership.
REV2016 will be hosted at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center in Burlington, Vermont. More details about this year’s conference can be found by visiting the REV website. Registration can be completed here.
