General Session: The Role of Carbon in FERC Regulation
October 15, 2019, 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Historically, FERC has not figured prominently in the debates over how to address climate change. But that has changed in recent years. As governments, industries, and non-governmental organizations look for sustainable ways to address climate change, FERC’s role is often included in these debates. This panel will explore the role that FERC can and should play under NEPA, the NGA, and the FPA when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. The discussion will consider how FERC regulates the bulk power system under the “just and reasonable” standard and its certificate process under the “public convenience and necessity” standard. The panel will explore what should FERC be doing, if anything, to comply with its Congressional mandates and central role over the nation’s energy markets and infrastructure.
