Federal Environmental Framework For Energy Projects


At the federal level, the regulatory framework governing energy projects is complex and can involve a number of federal agencies. Which agencies will be involved depends on a number of different project-specific factors, including the type of activity, the location of the activity, and the type of fuel involved.

This paper will discuss the primary federal agencies that regulate the environmental aspects of fossil fuel energy projects, those agencies’ authority, and how they interact with each other.

Presented at the UT CLE Essential Administrative and Environmental Law for Energy Projects Conference, Houston, December 1, 2010, and Austin, November 18, 2010. To read the full article or the presentation slides click on the PDFs linked below.
