EBA Annual Meeting & Conference
The challenges of generating and delivering energy securely are changing. From extreme weather events and concerns of climate change, to physical and cyber attacks, electric utilities and pipelines face risks of increasing frequency and severity, while an increasing number of energy consumers are producing their own electricity. The Energy Bar Association’s 2014 Annual Meeting & Conference will provide two full days of discussions focused on the legal issues that stem from these changes. Day One will feature our keynote speaker, Ambassador R. James Woolsey (Chairman, Foundation for Defense of Democracies and Former Director of Central Intelligence), who will discuss energy and national security, followed by panels examining how our energy industry will evolve by the year 2025 and exploring the pace of permitting new energy infrastructure in the U.S. Day Two will feature panels exploring the challenges of preserving energy infrastructure security and resiliency and providing an update on the latest efforts to improve gas-electric coordination. Breakout session panels will cover a wide variety of topics. From distributed generation to oil pipelines, from energy trading enforcement to hydropower, every energy lawyer will gain something informative for his or her practice. And don't miss the networking opportunities, from receptions and coffee breaks to lunch and the Annual Meeting Dinner. We look forward to seeing you in April!
