Can the Yellow School Bus Go Green?
Jul 29, 2020
Sidley Austin LLP

The classic yellow school bus is turning green. Electric buses may continue to grow in popularity, and the so-called “vehicle-to-grid” technology enables the new buses both to store and draw power. Yet, there is a state-versus-federal regulatory battle that could stifle this innovation. Who can benefit from this technology, and how can companies, utilities, and school districts navigate the opportunities and challenges? 

Our latest episode of The Sidley Podcast grapples with those questions and many others. Join host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with one of Sidley’s thought leaders on the subject — Ken Irvin, coleader of Sidley’s global Energy practice, who represents clients on matters involving the wholesale electricity and gas markets. He has extensive experience representing businesses in investigations and regulatory proceedings before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
