EBC NH Chapter Program: Update on the New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee

March 12, 2014 @ 7:30 am – 12:00 pm

With the creation of the NH Site Evaluation Committee, the New Hampshire legislature established a procedure for the review, approval, monitoring, and enforcement of compliance in the planning, siting, construction, and operation of energy facilities. The New Hampshire Site Evaluation Committee (NHSEC) provides "one stop shopping" for the permitting of all large energy facilities in New Hampshire. Its jurisdiction may extend to new or modified generation sources, electric transmission lines, natural gas pipelines and LNG storage facilities, etc. Given the pace of change taking place in energy infrastructure development, especially in New England, it is essential for everyone who deals with large energy projects to understand how the New Hampshire permitting process works. The goal of this EBC New Hampshire Chapter program is to provide that basic information as well as updates on how this NHSEC process may be changing in the near future.
Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.
