2015 was a transformative year for the US power sector. Join Practical Law, the Brattle Group, Hannon Armstrong and Sullivan and Worcester LLP for a free 75-minute webinar that will discuss key demand drivers and emerging business models in this sector. Against a background of mounting environmental imperatives vs. (currently) low-cost fossil energy and low interest rates, the presenters will address:

  • Policy mandates such as the Paris Climate Accords, EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP), and select state and regional initiatives.
  • Potential implications for US power demand.
  • Business and governmental responses to achieve energy efficiency, promote renewables, and otherwise reduce carbon emissions, including:
    • Deployment of clean power and energy efficiency;
    • Technology developments;
    • Tax law developments;
    • Financial innovation; and
    • New business models.
  • The outlook for 2016.

A short Q&A session will follow.
