April 30, 2018 -- Energy industry professionals throughout North America will gather in Houston May 3-4 for the Second Annual North American Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Conference, titled "North American Energy and Environmental Policy in Transition."
The event is sponsored by the Law Center's Environment, Energy & Natural Resources Center, Blank Rome LLP, and the University of Calgary Faculty of Law. The two-day event will be held at the Greater Houston Partnership's Partnership Tower at 701 Avenida de las Americas, Suite 900.
The conference will analyze the energy, environmental, natural resources legal issues that span Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. The conference will focus on issues surrounding NAFTA renegotiation or abandonment, diverging climate change policies, the acceleration of renewables on the North American grids, the privatization of Mexico's energy sector and what these changes mean for the energy business, the economy generally, and the environment in each of these countries.
"The conference is a chance for scholars, practitioners and government officials to address the most timely issues in North American energy and environment: the future of NAFTA, whether infrastructure buildout will keep up with demand for energy movement, the divergent climate policies between North American countries and more," said Professor Victor Flatt, director of the Law Center's Environment, Energy & Natural Resources Center.
