Grodsky Prize Goes to Masterton

The 2014 Jamie Grodsky Prize for Environmental Law Scholarship was awarded to Molly Masterton for her paper, “Promoting Marine and Hydrokinetic Energy and Managing Environmental Risk: Toward an Adaptive Management Strategy.” 

Ms. Masterton’s innovative paper highlights the uncertainties associated with marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) technologies and proposes three mechanisms through which Congress or the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission could formally integrate adaptive management principles into the regulatory framework for licensing MHK projects.
