2014 Energy Bar Association Mid-Year Meeting & Conference

Clifford (Mike) M. Naeve

Washington, D.C. energy regulation and litigation partner Mike Naeve participated in the Energy Bar Association's 2014 Mid-Year Meeting & Conference, held in Washington, D.C. The conference focused on recent changes in the relationship between state and federal agencies in their regulatory roles, including the D.C. Circuit’s recent decision raising questions about FERC’s authority over demand response programs, as well as EPA’s major proposal to regulate carbon emissions from existing coal-fired power plants.

On November 5, Mr. Naeve participated in a panel titled "The Evolving Nature of the Practice of Energy Law in 2014." The panel discussed trends and issues that they had followed over the course of their careers and drew out some of the broad themes they had studied from the 1970s through today.
