ScottMadden Energy Industry Update Reviews FERC Jurisdiction Policy Priorities

August 25, 2016

ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America’s leading energy consulting firms, recently released its newest edition of The Energy Industry Update. This highly anticipated semi-annual report provides bottom-line insights, distills recent events, and helps you prepare for emerging trends.

FERC, the states, and the EPA are pushing and testing the boundaries of their traditional jurisdictions to pursue their respective policy priorities.

“The once-clear lines that delineated state and federal and energy and environmental jurisdiction have been getting blurrier,” said Greg Litra, partner at ScottMadden. “Sorting out how agencies align their approaches or who has primacy will be important in settling market rules as well as allocating the costs and benefits of energy asset investment among stakeholders. As this unfolds, there will continue to be winners and losers.”

Some playing fields for contested jurisdiction include demand response compensation, power generation markets and price formation, and environmental regulation of the power sector. This report provides a summary of the policies under debate, each side’s arguments, and litigation outcomes or potential next steps.
