Each year, the Environmental Law and Policy Annual Review (ELPAR)—a collaboration between Vanderbilt University Law School (VULS) and the Environmental Law Institute—identifies articles that propose innovative law and policy approaches to pressing environmental problems. 

Topics include:

  • Utilizing the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s authority to ensure just and reasonable interstate wholesale electricity rates to address harms caused by greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Improving the Securities and Exchange Commission's sustainability disclosure requirements. 

  • Imposing exactions on developers that incentivize them to invest in low-carbon energy supply and build more energy efficient structures.
