Energy and Environment: Due Diligence and Compliance – Responding to a Spill

Accidents happen – any business handling chemicals may face a situation where there is a spill. A spill of hazardous materials (petroleum, solvents or liquid materials) may reach surface or underground waters and threaten the environment, employees, first responders and the public.

Under federal and state law a spill may trigger reporting obligations and the need to undertake immediate corrective action. This presentation will provide practical information about spill reporting and response in a variety of scenarios, address the handling of past spills and releases in the context of business and real estate transactions, and review best practices for clients to limit their liability.

– Joseph G. Maternowski; Hessian & McKasy, P.A.
– William Lazarz; Bay West, LLC

Energy and Environment: Renewable Energy – Permitting and Repowering

One of the major challenges in working with renewable energy is matching the regulatory timeframe with the business objectives of the project. There are often very tight timelines involved with financing, tax incentives, state objectives, and regulatory requirements. In this presentation, Christy Brusven will provide you with valuable insight on how to identify risks up front and provide your clients with a working timeline that incorporates strategies for reducing potential delays.

– Christina K. Brusven; Fredrikson & Byron P.A.

Energy and Environment: Regulatory and Legislative Updates

This presentation features two updates from this year’s Minnesota Environmental Institute. David Zoll analyzes the year’s most important developments in environmental review and environmental rights and Sara Peterson explores federal and state cleanup policy developments and key CERCLA, MERLA, and RCRA decisions.

Energy and Environment: Energy Regulation in Minnesota 101 – What Your Clients Need to Know

In Minnesota, the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) regulates public utilities and electricity rates, oil pipeline companies, and renewable energy such as large wind and solar facilities. This presentation will discuss Minnesota’s energy regulatory environment and explain why practitioners should better understand what the PUC does and how its dockets and decisions impact clients – as they have a greater effect on your clients’ business than you may realize. This presentation provides you with the PUC information that you need to know to enable your clients to successfully plan for and avoid project or transaction delays due to regulatory risk.
