FERC’s Office of Energy Projects (OEP) Director Ann F. Miles will testify before the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Power May 13 about hydroelectric issues.
The OEP is responsible for siting infrastructure projects including licensing, administration, and safety of non-federal hydropower projects; authorization of interstate natural gas pipelines and storage facilities; and authorization and safety of liquefied natural gas terminals.
Miles, who has been with FERC since 1985, will discuss discussion drafts addressing hydropower regulatory modernization and FERC process coordination under the Natural Gas Act.
The hearing is entitled “Discussion Draft Addressing Energy Reliability and Security.” The hearing will be webcast.
The subcommittee, chaired by Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.) is looking at ways to speed up approvals for hydroelectric and gas pipeline projects at the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
The hearing is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building.
