The newly passed "highway bill" (Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act) amends the Federal Power Act to incorporate new energy security provisions.

The provisions aim to strengthen the federal government’s authority over electric grid emergency response, facilitate coordination among federal agencies on reliability issues, enhance the protocols for protecting and sharing Critical Energy Infrastructure Information, and exempt utilities from environmental penalties when operating subject to Department of Energy emergency directives.

Please join us for a one-hour webinar about the new provisions and how they will likely affect electric utilities.

Topics will include:

  • An overview of the new provisions
  • The provisions’ background
  • The regulatory steps required
