About the lecture: The United States has seen dramatic growth in energy development with much of it occurring on privately owned lands, creating a unique raft of opportunity and risk for landowners. The presentation reviews research on the nexus of property ownership rights and regulatory policy, with a focus on Shale and Wind Energy. It introduces the concept of 'Private Participation' in the planning and siting of energy projects and discusses how private property ownership will continue to influence the energy revolution.

Join UM Library for this interactive discussion with Dr. Missy Stults to explore the meaning of the term and how cities around the U.S. are using it to guide their planning and implementation efforts. They will also explore how the federal government and states are supporting or limiting efforts to enhance place-based resilience.
