Energy, Climate, and Environmental Law News

Many projects and companies’ business operations intersect with environmental law issues. At the National Law Review, you’ll find the latest news on environmental law including permitting issues, Brownfield remediation and redevelopment, cleanup cost recovery, and hazardous waste disposal requirements under federal and state law. We feature commentary on enforcement actions by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) regarding liabilities under the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act (“TSCA”), the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System ("NPDES") and more.  We also have articles that cover environmental and natural resources issues on a state level.  Additionally, the National Law Review features coverage on environmental lawsuits and litigation, including cases brought on both the state and federal levels and the precedents that they create.  

The National Law Review also provides the latest legal developments in the energy industry. We feature content on actions by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”), and renewable energy generation, such as wind, solar, hydroelectric and geothermal power, biomass, ethanol, and biodiesel as well as coal, oil and natural gas and nuclear power.
