AI’s Magnified Risks, Payoffs in Energy Industry Demand Vigilance

Energy and Sustainability Chair Thomas R. Burton, III, Projects and Infrastructure Chair Ayaz Shaikh, and Law Clerk Manushi Desai co-authored an article in Bloomberg Law providing a legal guide for energy companies as they transition toward using artificial intelligence.

The authors wrote, “The Biden administration’s recent executive order aims to establish vigilant oversight over emerging artificial intelligence systems. It also addresses critical workforce implications and national security concerns. It’s imperative for energy companies to assess potential legal ramifications of integrating AI into their operations.”

“Within the energy sector, legislation may encompass regulations that safeguard privacy of energy consumers’ usage data and establish more robust safety and security standards.”

“Adeptly navigating the intricate interplay of technology, regulations, and consumer concerns is pivotal for achieving sustainable progress.”
