Energy & the Environment: Challenges in a Changing World


January 29, 2019


Arlington, VA (and webinar)

An ELI and AECOM Co-Sponsored Seminar

Energy requirements, policy, and regulations are changing rapidly in the U.S. Numerous large-scale energy projects are underway and as such, energy generation, supply, and distribution infrastructure is changing at an unprecedented rate. With such shifts across the energy sector, the focus now turns especially to energy transmission including regulatory updates, emerging and complex storm water and erosion and sedimentation control requirements, environmental impact analysis and permitting, and environmental construction monitoring.

Leading experts explored the changes and challenges in energy transmission, environmental protection and compliance, permitting challenges and solutions implemented, and more, with a special focus on pipelines.
