Gas Policy in Crisis: FERC and the path forward

May 24, 2022 • 1pm ET

In this first installment in the Energy Policy News 2022 webinar series, former Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Chairman Neil Chatterjee and NRDC Senior Attorney Gillian Giannetti will discuss FERC’s natural gas infrastructure policies, which have been the subject of intense scrutiny in recent months. The policies, which were walked back to draft status by the Commission last month, raise questions about the future of natural gas during the clean energy transition as well as FERC’s fundamental role as a federal energy regulator.
