It is well known that U.S. federal agencies are expressing concern over greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. At the same time, and in connection with those concerns, a few U.S. states have passed comprehensive legislation requiring a true energy transition to occur over the next 20 to 30 years, however most states have been much less ambitious.
Reed Smith partners Pete Trimarchi and Todd Maiden discuss how this state legislation and the related policies will affect transportation, electricity generation, buildings, and more. Pete and Todd also share information on how businesses can begin to adjust.
The episode builds on the firm’s recent report, Energy Transition – An evolving journey, a 15-article publication analyzing what government and markets can do to help bring about a decarbonized world and what role the energy industry will play.
