The Future Of The Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant

Thursday, Mar 1, 2012

The Indian Point nuclear power plant is located in Westchester County, New York, thirty miles north of New York City. Its two units opened in 1974 and 1976, and their owners have applied to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for relicensing for 20 years. Whether to relicense the plant has become a matter of public controversy, raising issues of energy, environmental, and economic policy. This program will feature speakers with contrasting views on the fate of the facility and on the underlying policy and legal issues.

Sponsors: Columbia Law School Center for Climate Change Law; The Earth Institute of Columbia University; Environmental Law and Energy Law Committees, NYC Bar Association;
New York League of Conservation Voters; NYS Bar Association Section on Environmental Law

Speakers: Paul Gallay, President - Riverkeeper, Inc.; Ashok Gupta, Director of Energy Policy - Natural Resources Defense Council; Arthur J. Kremer, Chairman - Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance, New York Area; John Kelly, Director of Licensing (Retired) - Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant
