Law360 Publishes Akin Gump Article on Supreme Court’s Demand Response Ruling

Law360 has published the article “High Court Ruling May Mean More Demand Response Scrutiny,” written by Chip Cannon and Todd Brecher, partner and associate, respectively, in the energy regulation, markets and enforcement practice at Akin Gump.

The article addresses the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission v. Electric Power Supply Association, which found that the commission (FERC) has jurisdiction under the Federal Power Act "to incorporate demand response into the organized wholesale electricity markets it regulates.”

Cannon and Brecher note that while the ruling was a victory for the demand response industry, it might also lead to increased FERC enforcement scrutiny of demand response activities.
