    EBA Primer Series: An Introduction to FERC Regulation of the Natural Gas Industry
    EBA
    On May 19-20, 2014, EBA will hold its next program in the EBA Primer Series: An Introduction to FERC Regulation of the Natural Gas Industry, at the law firm of Jones Day in Chicago, IL. The goal of this primer is to provide an overview of the federal regulation of the natural gas industry by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Taught by industry practitioners and regulators from FERC, the course begins with a brief overview of the natural gas industry, including the production, gathering, transportation, distribution, and storage of natural gas. The course describes key statutes governing and affecting the interstate transportation of natural gas and discusses key legal milestones. Instructors explain important regulatory concepts, pipeline services, and the scope and limits of FERC jurisdiction. The class covers key sections of the NGA, including imports and exports under Section 3; construction and abandonment under section 7; ratemaking under sections 4 and 5; and enforcement issues.

    The Buffalo News
    Richard Kauffman, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's point man on energy policy, knows that energy efficiency and green energy can be a tough sell, mainly because of the upfront costs and long payback periods.
