University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law – Josh Craft, Government and Corporate Relations Manager, Utah Clean Energy and Hunter Holman, Staff Attorney, Utah Clean Energy, present today part II of the ULaw CLE webinar series. Part I was held on Nov. 12 and was titled, “Part I: Climate Change – What We Are Up Against.”
Utah is currently in the midst of one of the most important times for our energy future. The UN IPCC made it clear: We must revamp our energy sector in the next decade to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. To do this, we need to build new clean, flexible, and reliable energy infrastructure that will both serve Utah’s growing energy needs while also reduce pollution from our energy sector at the scale and pace needed. Policy and regulatory proceedings at the state and federal level are going to directly affect how Utah transitions to a clean energy future, and how long it will take. At the national level, the President and Congress are discussing major investments in energy infrastructure that could rapidly accelerate our energy transition here in Utah. At the state level, the Utah Public Service Commission, the state agency that regulates electric utilities in Utah, will be reviewing several proposals that that will either build clean energy resource capacity in the state or expand Utah’s share of coal-fired power plants. Join Josh Craft and Hunter Holman from Utah Clean Energy to discuss these federal and state actions and learn more about how Utah is planning to transition to a clean energy future.
