Roger D. Stark, a Washington-based partner at Ballard Spahr with more than 20 years of experience advising on the structuring and financing of energy projects, has been named a co-chair of the American Bar Association’s Committee on Renewable, Alternative and Distributed Energy Resources (RADER).
As a co-chair of RADER, Stark will promote the Committee’s mission to facilitate dialogue among thought leaders in the legal, regulatory, and policy communities on issues affecting non- conventional energy resources. RADER is part of the ABA’s Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources. Stark’s one-year term began this month.
“The shale gas revolution is highlighting the need for sustainable 21st-century energy policies that support the goals of our existing environmental laws,” said Stark, a member of Ballard Spahr’s Energy and Project Finance Group. “I look forward to helping RADER develop initiatives that will promote dialogue on key issues and continue RADER’s tradition of leadership on non-conventional energy issues.”
