Feb. 10, 2021 – Back to the Future: Energy Policy in the Biden Administration

Wednesday, February 10, 2021

4:30-6:00pm

President Joe Biden has pledged to pursue a starkly different energy policy than the prior administration. Among other things, Biden has promised to dramatically curb methane emissions from the oil and gas sector, cut fossil fuel subsidies, and put the US on a path to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Achieving these goals will require sweeping changes to federal energy and environmental laws. At this upcoming panel discussion, experts from industry, law and the environmental community will assess what steps the Biden Administration can or should to take to implement these reforms and the obstacles that it may encounter along the way.
