Energy Development and the Department of Defense: State Policy Options

Thursday, July 31, 2014 | 3 p.m. ET/ 2 p.m. CT/ 1 p.m. MT/ Noon PT

As states and localities experience a dramatic increase in the number of siting and construction permits for utility-scale renewable energy, and associated electric power transmission projects, the potential for conflict with Department of Defense (DoD) activities increases. The resulting DoD impacts could be minimized by careful planning, including actions that the states and local communities may wish to support. Renewable energy and electrical transmission projects can interfere with nearby military installations and airspace by obstructing flight paths or creating electromagnetic interference. A number of states have included the DoD in the project planning or review phase with the goal to expedite the permitting process and mitigate potential impacts to DoD operations. Join us on this free webinar discuss best practices from legislators and state and federal executive offices.
