Please join Morgan Lewis partner J. Daniel Skees for a discussion of current federal efforts to encourage the development of hydropower, including efforts to streamline licensing proceedings, conversion of nonpowered dams, reductions in the land use charges for hydro projects, and development of pumped storage projects
