National law firm Husch Blackwell is pleased to announce that the firm will serve as event sponsor of the 2023 Gas & Power Institute presented by the University of Texas School of Law and the Oil, Gas and Energy Resources Law Section of the State Bar of Texas.

This year’s event will take place Friday, October 27, at the Whitehall Hotel in Houston. Registration for the conference is currently available.

The Gas & Power Institute is a one-day program that features timely topics relevant to the gas and power industries, in light of the changing landscape of rules, regulation, legislation, and environmental requirements. The Institute also provides essential information and resources on the latest industry and market climate.

The programming will also feature Husch Blackwell partner Chris Reeder, who will moderate a panel discussion on recent highlights from the 88th Legislative Session and recent judicial and administrative decisions affecting the Texas gas and electric industries. In addition, attorney Dakota Parish will discuss recent legislation passed during the 88th Texas Legislature’s regular session related to the PUCT, ERCOT and the Texas Railroad Commission, as well as recent regulations and rule additions at the PUCT and the RRC and their effect on the energy market going forward.

“The energy landscape in Texas has gone through a number of changes since our last Gas & Power Institute in 2021 because of Winter Storm Uri and the Inflation Reduction Act. This year’s program breaks down all the developments into digestible bits,” said Chris Reeder, a partner in Husch Blackwell’s Energy & Natural Resources industry group and the chair of the Gas & Power Institute’s Planning Committee. “Our programming aims to be thorough—covering oil & gas, fossil fuels, and renewables, but also emerging areas such as generative artificial intelligence. Energy leaders throughout Texas should find this year’s content use and thought provoking.”
