Building Across Boundaries: Developing Energy Projects on or Near Tribal Lands and Resources - Tuesday, May 8, 2018 11:00am Session A
Indian Tribes and energy project developers are increasingly interested in working cooperatively on energy generation and infrastructure projects both on and near Indian lands. Developers of new transmission or pipeline projects, and solar and wind generation, on or near tribal lands have experienced mixed results in partnering with tribes. Also, recent court decisions have emphasized the challenges faced by electric utilities and pipeline companies as ROWs expire for existing infrastructure across tribal lands. Their experiences can provide useful case studies for understanding the issues and best practices for energy development that intersects with tribal interests, lands and resources. Notably, tribal consultation processes and tribal engagement are increasingly used as important tools in successful project development. This panel will explore the issues, strategies, and techniques that have produced successful outcomes.
