Session 1: Wanted: Dead or Alive? An Update on the Status of EPA's Clean Power Plan The validity and merits of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan have been the focus of contentious debate—with a number of significant governmental and private entities seeking to uphold the Plan and others seeking to kill it. In February 2016, the Supreme Court, surprisingly to many, stayed the implementation of the plan and the DC Circuit Court heard oral arguments this fall. Since then, there’s been an election. What now? This presentation offers a prognosis for the Clean Power Plan.

Session 2: Siting Insights: Looking Back and Looking Ahead at Key Environmental Developments 2016 was a remarkable year with many significant developments involving the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and other federal agencies that directly impact renewable energy development activities. Review these developments and take stock of what they mean for project siting decisions going forward. Hear insights into what those developments tell us about the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's approach to its statutory mandates and what we can expect to see in the year to come.
