We are ready to help our clients navigate the potential legal and regulatory changes that could arise under a Biden administration, as affected by the final outcome of the U.S. Senate races, including the likely change of focus at The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Some considerations under a Biden Administration include:
- Approval of new rules to incorporate carbon pricing into wholesale markets.
- Heightened scrutiny of proposed pipelines regarding greenhouse gas impacts.
- Review of capacity market rules that mandate offer floors for state-subsidized zero-emission resources.
- Uptick in investigations pursued by the Office of Enforcement regarding tariff compliance, anticompetitive behavior, and market manipulation.
Baker Botts is working with clients to prepare for, and help inform, these initiatives.
