Episode 24 — Energy & Infrastructure: How Will the Biden Administration’s Goals Affect the Energy Transition?

April 28, 2021
Federal climate action aims to accelerate the transition to clean energy, with major changes affecting nearly every aspect of the industry.

The Biden Administration’s climate goals are ambitious: A carbon free power sector by 2035. Net zero emissions by 2050. Targeting 40% of federal climate action benefits toward disadvantaged communities. So, what is the Administration doing to move toward these goals? And how will different energy and infrastructure sectors be impacted?

In this episode of Connected With Latham, partners Omar Nazif and Lauren Anderson speak with Janice Schneider, Global Vice Chair of Latham’s Environment, Land & Resources Department and former Assistant Secretary for Land and Minerals Management at the Department of the Interior, and Nikki Buffa, counsel in the Orange County and Washington, D.C. offices and a former Deputy Chief of Staff at the Department of Interior and White House staffer. Janice and Nikki both bring deep knowledge in this area, and experience working in the federal government, which gives them terrific insight into this topic.
