    Event Summary
    The rise of bitcoin mining has become a subject of criticism due to its energy-intensive process to create coins. Notably, the huge amount of carbon dioxide emitted by this energy usage can be detrimental to the environment. With its drastic impact, the crypto mining industry is now under immense pressure to go 100% renewable.

    As environmental advocates continuously strive for zero-carbon energy, more developments to change the prevailing view of the negative effects of the energy-guzzling computers also unlock. The Green Proofs for BTC and Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) are among these initiatives.

    In this LIVE Webcast, experienced environmental lawyers Linda R. Shaw (Knauf Shaw LLP) and David P. Flynn (Phillips Lytle LLP) will provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion of the current developments and challenges surrounding bitcoin mining and renewable energy. Speakers, among other things, will also provide key considerations in switching to renewable energy sources.

    Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

    • Bitcoin Mining and Renewable Energy: Notable Regulatory Developments
    • Understanding the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and the Green Proofs for BTC
    • Key Considerations in Switching to Renewable Energy Sources
    • Other Emerging Trends, Challenges, and Opportunities
    • What Lies Ahead
