Regulatory Considerations for Developing Distributed and Utility-Scale Generation Projects on Federal Land Webinar

Link: Regulatory Considerations for Developing Distributed and Utility-Scale Generation Projects on Federal Land Webinar

Date: 2/6/2013

The purpose of this webinar was to educate federal agencies on regulatory issues related to the development of distributed generation or utility-scale generation projects on federal land. The webinar addressed issues such as:

  • What types of transactions fall under FERC jurisdictional?
  • What are the pertinent federal laws and how do they apply?
  • Does any party qualify as a "public utility" or "transmitting utility" under federal law before or after the transaction? If so, what does it mean?
  • Does any party need to register with NERC as a result of the transaction? If so, what is the process?
  • How are the considerations different for renewable projects that are owned by a federal site versus those where a federal agency hosts a third-party developer's renewable energy project and purchases some/all of the energy?

This is a follow-on to the "Regulatory Considerations for Developing Distributed Generation Projects" webinar that can be accessed on the FEMP Power Purchase Agreements website.
