Targeted Regulation Of Proxy Voting Advice: Balancing Monitoring With Information Flow In The Age Of Esg, Jara R.Y. Jacobson 2022 Brooklyn Law School

Targeted Regulation Of Proxy Voting Advice: Balancing Monitoring With Information Flow In The Age Of Esg, Jara R.Y. Jacobson

Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial & Commercial Law

Proxy voting advice businesses have historically been guided by disjointed rules and regulations based on their relationship to other entities, but under a 2020 rulemaking they were officially brought under the auspices of the Securities and Exchange Commission. However, after a change in presidential administrations, the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2021 issued a proposed amendment which, if adopted, would rescind some of the more contentious elements of the initial 2020 rulemaking. This Note considers how, even if the 2021 proposed amendments are adopted, the Securities and Exchange Commission can simultaneously regulate and protect proxy voting advice businesses through the ...

Decarceration With Decarbonization: Renewable Rikers And The Transition To Clean Power, Rebecca Bratspies 2022 University of San Diego

Decarceration With Decarbonization: Renewable Rikers And The Transition To Clean Power, Rebecca Bratspies

San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law

This Article offers New York City’s Renewable Rikers project as an example of how this might be done, and how communities might combine decarbonization with decarceration in order to build a more just and sustainable society. By putting racial justice and overburdened communities at the center of building a clean energy grid, Renewable Rikers offers a model for genuine and transformative change that confronts root causes of inequality and builds a better, fairer city. It does so by tying electrification and land use decisions to equity concerns, and by facilitating meaningful community involvement in these infrastructure decisions. In this ...


Hydropower's Promise: The Opportunities And Challenges Of Hydropower For Mitigating Climate-Driven Scarcity, Lauren Perkins, Sylwia Dakowicz, Ellen Hill, Peter Kissel, Sean Neal 2022 University of San Diego

Hydropower's Promise: The Opportunities And Challenges Of Hydropower For Mitigating Climate-Driven Scarcity, Lauren Perkins, Sylwia Dakowicz, Ellen Hill, Peter Kissel, Sean Neal

San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law

This Article examines hydroelectric resources’ ability to assist states throughout the West and across the country in meeting their statutory and policy goals of reduced or zero carbon emissions, while maintaining reliability. Extreme weather events, and associated costs, are not isolated to the Western Interconnection, but rather increasingly impact other regions and their end-use customers. In its 2021 U.S. Hydropower Market Report, the Department of Energy (DOE) noted that, in nearly every Balancing Authority Area assessed, hydropower was more extensively used for hourly ramping flexibility than any other resource. Additional services hydroelectric resources provide, including storage capacity and black ...


How Virtual Powers Plants Can Advance Electrification And Mitigate Infrastructure Needs As We Race To Meet Our Climate Challenges, Kevin B. Jones PhD, Mary Franco, Kim Mashke, Sarah A. Pardee 2022 University of San Diego

How Virtual Powers Plants Can Advance Electrification And Mitigate Infrastructure Needs As We Race To Meet Our Climate Challenges, Kevin B. Jones Phd, Mary Franco, Kim Mashke, Sarah A. Pardee

San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law

This paper explores three contemporary case studies of how distributed energy resources have been aggregated into Virtual Power Plants (VPPs) to provide resilient, low carbon solutions for our climate challenge in a manner that can mitigate demands on our energy infrastructure. These recent case studies will analyze distributed energy resources and how they can be aggregated to participate in wholesale electric markets to reduce the demand for larger utility scale resources while also providing grid services locally. These case studies build on previous research on distributed energy resources we have performed at our Institute for Energy and the Environment. The ...


Fact Or Doctrine? Inconsistencies In The Application Of The Dormant Commerce Clause's Extraterritoriality Principle To Challenges To State Climate Change Prevention Policies, Kelsey Gagnon 2022 University of San Diego

Fact Or Doctrine? Inconsistencies In The Application Of The Dormant Commerce Clause's Extraterritoriality Principle To Challenges To State Climate Change Prevention Policies, Kelsey Gagnon

San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law

The “dormant” Commerce Clause’s prohibition on extraterritorial regulation has tested state efforts to battle greenhouse gas-induced climate change using clean energy policies. This is partly due to the structure of the North American power grid. Simply put, the electricity generated by an in-state power facility might be consumed by any other state connected to that same interconnection during normal operations. This cross-border flow, sale, and consumption of electricity places the grid within the regulatory grasp of the United States Constitution’s Commerce Clause. Congress therefore has authority to regulate the interstate electricity market. The Supreme Court has also interpreted ...


Will The Border Water Quality Restoration And Protection Act Of 2020 Be Enough To Flush The Tijuana River Valley Water Pollution Crisis Down The Drain?, Kyle A. Rudolph 2022 University of San Diego

Will The Border Water Quality Restoration And Protection Act Of 2020 Be Enough To Flush The Tijuana River Valley Water Pollution Crisis Down The Drain?, Kyle A. Rudolph

San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law

This Article reviews the complex and decades-long wastewater pollution crisis occurring in the Tijuana River Valley, its legislative history, and whether the Water Quality Restoration and Protection Act of 2020 would flush the Tijuana River Valley water pollution crisis down the drain in light of the promulgation of the USMCA.


Nevada's Energy Choice Initiative: A Case Study Of Deregulation, The Dormant Commerce Clause, And Energy Federalism, Joel A. Kaufmann 2022 University of San Diego

Nevada's Energy Choice Initiative: A Case Study Of Deregulation, The Dormant Commerce Clause, And Energy Federalism, Joel A. Kaufmann

San Diego Journal of Climate & Energy Law

The fight over “Energy Choice” or “retail electricity market deregulation” in Nevada demonstrated a disagreement about how to structure electricity markets, economic consequences in the billions of dollars, and thorny legal doctrines like the Dormant Commerce Clause and dual sovereignty. The Energy Choice Initiative was the first attempt to deregulate a state’s retail electricity market by ballot initiative and the first include a right to “Energy Choice.” The Energy Choice Initiative is one example of the growing interest in retail customer choice or “Energy Choice” across the country. In the past two years, Virginia and Arizona considered retail customer ...
