May 28, WCTA Lunch: Cap and Trade
The Washington Clean Technology Alliance Lunch Seminars are an opportunity for business leaders, policy makers and interested citizens to come together to discuss the most relevant topics of the day. Each event features a guest speaker or panel.
This month we will discuss the rapidly evolving landscape of the U.S. carbon cap and trade system and its anticipated impact on businesses in the Pacific Northwest. Panelists will examine the Obama Administrations plans, the Waxman Markey Bill, and the role of the EPA. We have brought together a very strong panel to provide insight and critique of the proposed policies.
William Kidd is actively involved policy development and implementation for BP and will speak on BPs unique global perspective on US climate change policies. Ross Macfarlane is the Senior Advisor for Business Partnerships at Climate Solutions, where he works to forge partnerships with businesses that are seeking to build the clean energy economy in the Pacific Northwest. Ross is a long-time expert in this area and is knowledgeable on both state and federal policy issues and trends. Charles R. Brown is an attorney and lobbyist who practices government affairs at the Washington state legislative and administrative levels. His clients include energy sector, agricultural and manufacturing companies.
The panel will be moderated by Graham Noyes, attorney at Stoel Rives who focuses his practice on renewable energy project development and related federal policy work.
Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. and the Program begins at 12:00. Lunch will be served. A question and answer period will follow the panel discussion.
