New energy law/Smart Grid publication:

An Open Access Distribution Tariff: Removing Barriers to Innovation on the Smart Grid
61 UCLA Law Review 1712 (2014)

This Article proposes that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) consider promulgating an Open Access Distribution Tariff (OADT) to open the nation’s electric grid to new products and services at the consumer (distribution) level.

This Article argues that an OADT is necessary to create a smart electricity network that would be national, multimodal, and interactive.
