Green Power

  • The firm led a multi-renewable industry effort to extend and expand the scope of the renewable energy production tax credit.
  • We represent several renewable technology entities, including geothermal, wind, hydroelectric, and waste-to-energy companies, on project development and transactions.  Since 2000, the firm has advised on the development of renewable energy projects totaling over 1.3 gigaWatts.

  • We assist venture-backed companies as they market clean energy and other technology products to the federal government and seek federal research and development dollars.

  • For a number of clients that are pursuing advanced clean coal and coal gasification projects, we help integrate into their project planning the impacts of federal financial incentives and policy mandates, including tax and rate incentives, and potential climate change regulatory markets.

  • The firm manages the Coal Utilization Research Council (CURC), a coalition of industry and educational institutions with an interest in promoting clean coal technology.  CURC was a principal player in designing and advocating passage of the nearly $7.0 billion in federal government incentives and authorizations for integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) and other clean coal technology programs now included in the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
