  • Getting the Gas Sector’s Energy Transition Underway

    A video recording of the event is available here.

    Thanks to states' decarbonization commitments and the availability of technological alternatives to gas-reliant appliances, the coming decades are likely to see radical reductions in natural gas use in residential and commercial buildings and the adoption of clean alternatives. The Institute for Policy Integrity, Columbia Law School's Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, and NYU School of Law's State Energy & Environmental Impact Center will bring together officials from some of the states leading the way in this transition and ask them to share their distinct perspectives and insights about the path forward.

  • Building a New Grid Without New Legislation

    A video recording of the event is available here.

    According to new research from the Center on Global Energy Policy and NYU School of Law’s Institute for Policy Integrity, the U.S. Department of Energy and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission could use existing authorities to overcome state regulatory obstacles and advance transmission development, even without new Congressional action. CGEP and Policy Integrity hosted an event to discuss this new research and potential next-steps that these agencies could take that would allow them to facilitate transmission system development in order to accelerate the transition to zero-carbon electricity.
