Law Seminars International Presents:
The Second Annual Two-Day Conference on Developing Transmission in the Northeast 

Legal, Business And Regulatory Developments

February 2 & 3, 2015
One Financial Center in Boston, MA  -or- Anyplace you may be via webcast!

Who Should Attend
Attorneys, industry executives, governmental officials and customer representatives involved with electric generation and transmission issues and consideration of alternatives to new projects.

Why You Should Attend
Ongoing challenges to the integration of economic renewable resources, the siting of transmission reliability projects and opening up access in the Northeast United States to resources in Eastern Canada, to name a few, have led states, system operators and industry executives in the Northeast to revisit questions related to transmission planning, the allocation of transmission costs among states and industry participants, and the priorities of state renewable energy policies. The challenges of large-scale transmission and resource planning are being further stressed by an emerging industry of advanced energy technologies that could change the fundamental footprint and operations of regional and local transmission and distribution grids; state regulators have begun to explore policies and rate structures to support a more distributed system architecture.

This conference examines the issues surrounding transmission and distributed system technology and policy, along with the regulatory changes that are affecting expansion, coordination and planning efforts.

Faculty will speak frankly about where the money is flowing and why and how state policy makers may or may not intervene in efforts to bring in distant low/zero-carbon resources over high-voltage transmission, examining case studies from around the region and their implications. Their choices and decision-making processes provide practical tips and techniques for builders, operators and users of the electric transmission system.


NECEC's VP, Policy & Government Affairs Janet Gail Besser will be speaking at this conference.

Program Co-Chairs: Paul G. Afonso, Esq., Brown Rudnick LLP and Paul J. Hibbard, Vice President, Analysis Group, Inc.

Location: One Financial Center in Boston, MA and via webcast
