Monday, October 22nd Western Regional Partnership (WRP) Energy Committee webinar on Tribal Energy. This webinar will run from 10 to 11:30 am Pacific.

This webinar will highlight the processes by which energy development occurs on Tribal lands, related policies, current hurdles and recommendations. Tribal lands possess energy resources that could generate power, provide revenue, and create jobs in Indian Country while supporting the goals of clean energy and energy independence.  Developing energy projects (from initial assessment to project operations) can be time-consuming, complicated and frustrating.   Many Tribes have viable renewable energy resources and land for development, but do not have direct or proximate access to connect with the electrical grid system, diminishing Tribes' participation in developing profitable, utility-scale renewable energy. 

Keynote speakers will be:

  • Pilar Thomas, Esq. Of Counsel, Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP and U Poly Ira Fulton Schools of Engineering
  • Matt McKeown, Regional Solicitor, Rocky Mountain Region, Office of the Solicitor, U.S. Department of the Interior
  • Monte Mills, Associate Professor of Law and Co-Director, Margery Hunter Brown Indian Law Clinic, Alexander Blewett III School of Law, University of Montana
  • Dwight Deakin, Head, Sustainability Office, Naval Air Systems Command
