Paul Gallay, president and Hudson Riverkeeper, will join other panelists for The Forum on the Future of Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant at the Columbia Law School.

The Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant is located in Westchester County, about 30 miles north of New York City. Its two units opened in 1974 and 1976, and their owner, Entergy, has applied to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for relicensing for 20 years. Whether to relicense the plant has become a matter of considerable public controversy, raising issues of energy, environmental, and economic policy. This program will feature speakers with contrasting views on the fate of the facility and on the underlying policy and legal issues.

In addition to Paul Gallay, the other panelists are:

  • Ashok Gupta, director of energy policy, Natural Resources Defense Council
  • Arthur J. Kremer, chairman, Affordable Reliable Electricity Alliance, New York Area
  • John Kelly, director of licensing (retired), Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant

The moderator will be Michael B. Gerrard, the Andrew Sabin professor of professional practice and the director of the Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School.

Admission is free, but seating is limited and registration is required.

The event is sponsored by the Columbia Law School Center for Climate Change Law, the Earth Institute of Columbia University, the New York City Bar Association’s Environmental Law and Energy Law Committees, New York League of Conservation Voters and the New York State Bar Association Section on Environmental Law.

After the program, a video will be posted at
