American Bar Association Focuses on Renewable Energy
The American Bar Association (ABA) recently launched a Renewable Energy Resources Committee, which aims to tackle such issues as financial structuring, incentives to stimulate development, techniques for addressing regulatory constraints, synergies with environmental legal requirements, and measures to maximize the value of the legal benefits of renewable energy projects. The committee is hosting a series of monthly teleconferences; the first, in San Francisco on September 15th, is available via videoconference in four major cities and via telephone hookup in eight major cities.
