2nd annual North American Environment, Energy and Natural Resources Conference

North American Energy and Environmental Policy in Transition

Sponsored by Blank Rome, LLP, the Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources (EENR) Center of the University of Houston Law Center, and the University of Calgary Faculty of Law

May 3 and 4, 2018, Greater Houston Partnership, Partnership Tower, 701 Avenida de las Americas, Suite 900 (Houston Light Rail Green Line, Purple Line, Convention Center Stop)

With the possible renegotiation or abandonment of NAFTA; the privatization of Mexico's oil, gas, and electricity sector; the continuing buildout of energy infrastructure between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada; changes in U.S. climate policy; and the revolution in electricity generation and grid management, what issues will confront North American law firms and policy makers now and in the next few years?

The North American Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources Conference, sponsored by Blank Rome, is designed to address the energy, environmental, natural resources legal issues that span Canada, the United States and Mexico. This year the conference will address issues surrounding NAFTA renegotiation, 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.
