Troutman Sanders Partner Pens Chapter on Hydropower in Recently Released Book


WASHINGTON, D.C. - Troutman Sanders' Chuck Sensibais published in a recently released book, Legal Pathways to Deep Decarbonization in the United States: Summary and Key Recommendations. Sensiba, a partner in the firm's Energy and Regulatory Department, co-authored a chapter on hydropower along with Michael Swiger and Sharon White.

The book contains key information and recommendations from an extended volume to be published later this year that is based on two reports by the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP). The reports explain technical and policy pathways for reducing U.S. greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 80 percent from 1990 levels by 2050.

With nearly two decades of focused experience in the hydropower sector, Sensiba is a recognized authority in the water power industry and regularly handles complex licensing, natural resources and environmental issues related to the regulation of hydropower development. He is also a thought leader on federal environmental and other regulatory policies affecting the hydropower industry. His clients include public utility districts, state governmental entities, investor-owned utilities, water districts, independent power producers and developers.

Troutman Sanders' energy practice groups have counseled utilities and other energy clients about changing regulatory challenges since the 1920s. The team handles matters across the energy-related sector including renewable energy, nuclear, oil and natural gas, energy construction, electricity and energy storage.
