10. Exposing Pipeline Claims: Research on Regulations and Return On Equity

David Nimer is a Masters student at Duke University studying Environmental Economic Policy and was the Pipeline and Finance Researcher intern with us at BREDL. He is researching the regulations surrounding how pipelines are approved and specifically regarding how rates of return on equity (ROE) are guaranteed to pipeline developers. We discuss David’s research,  how economics of pipelines play in the favor of investors, who actually pays for the pipelines, if there is a need for new pipelines, building a data set on gas flows and electricty prices, and then what we can do with all this research.
