Energy Regulatory Law Definition

The energy industry is one of the most heavily regulated in Canada by federal, provincial, and municipal levels of government. Lawyers practicing in the energy regulatory area of law must have a comprehensive understanding of energy, environmental, and utility laws, policy, and regulation as it applies to producers of traditional and clean energy, regulated and deregulated utilities, third party energy suppliers, and energy users. Energy regulatory lawyers may be involved in utility rate cases, rate design, fuel cost adjustment proceedings, renewable energy and efficiency initiatives; open access transmission and distribution tariffs; market manipulation and market design; energy-related appellate litigation; energy marketing and trading; the regulatory and transactional aspects of mergers, acquisitions, and other transactions as well as the development, siting, and interconnection of energy projects; power production agreements; pipeline safety matters; natural gas and electricity coordination; and compliance.
