Abstract This report analyzes the [[Federal Energy
This report analyzes the [[Federal Energy Regulatory Commission]] (FERC) settlement agreement process and provides examples of settlement agreement provisions included as license, terms and conditions, or in off-license agreements. The process for obtaining, transferring, or surrendering a FERC hydropower license or exemption from licensing can involve a series of complex negotiations. The process may include stakeholders with different and competing objectives related to the original license, new license (i.e., relicense), transfer of a license, or surrender of a license (herein FERC authorization or authorization), which may cause licensing disputes. One mechanism to resolve disputes between project participants involving a FERC authorization is informal and formal settlement agreement conferences, which often result in settlement agreements addressing the disputed issues. To provide hydropower stakeholders with a better understanding of the FERC settlement agreement process, this report details: *How to initiate a settlement agreement *The procedural steps associated with the settlement agreement process *The legal standards the Commission must adhere to when determining whether settlement agreement provisions can become lawful and enforceable terms or conditions of a FERC authorization *Examples of settlement agreement provisions included as license terms and conditions or in off-license agreements from a collection of settlement agreements and Commission orders. <span class="btn btn-rapid bp">[https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy18osti/71093.pdf View the full report]</span>
