Resolving Land and Energy Conflicts

There is no free lunch! Energy siting is a complex endeavour rife with high risk, high uncertainty, and the one certainty that one constituency or another will be angry and opposed. And this holds true whether the energy project is a gas and oil pipeline or an offshore renewable wind project. There are no “good guys” in energy siting, however noble the policy goal may be in protecting our planet, creating jobs, or fuelling our advanced economies. But, negotiation theory and practice do offer lessons for how to approach such cases. Meaningful if imperfect engagement is possible. This webinar will explore the sources of energy siting conflict in the USA, offer case examples of using mutual gains negotiation to improve processes if not outcomes, and conclude with key principles to inform better energy siting processes.


Any questions for Patrick Field can be posted before Wednesday June 2nd. The email address to send in questions can be found in the confirmation email you receive after registering.
