Alternative Dispute Resolution and Consensus-Building Committee


Committee Description

Scope: The Alternative Dispute Resolution and Consensus-Building Committee provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and topics on wide-ranging process tools to resolve energy disputes at the state, national, and international levels proactively and in lieu of litigation, or at appropriate junctures in litigation, to manage and effect sound energy and environmental related decisions and outcomes that meet the business interests of all stakeholders. Alternative dispute resolution and consensus-building tools have universal application for dispute resolution specialists and panelists, technical experts, lawyers in a mediation advocacy role, arbitrators, government officials, and others invested in creative and non-litigious energy-related problem-solving across a variety of decision-making forums and jurisdictional settings.
