This program, presented by Devin McDougall of Sive, Paget & Riesel P.C., will provide an overview of recent developments in law and policy on the federal and state levels affecting renewable energy initiatives. Topics to be covered include the current state of renewable energy use and development in the U.S., an overview of power purchase agreements and related documents, practice tips, and broader policy discussions about renewable energy now and in the future.

The presentation provides an update to the 2017 presentation, “Renewable Energy: Law Politics & Practice.” If you missed that program, don’t worry. This course will revisit the basics of renewables before getting into the changes that have happened since then, which include changes in various environmental regulatory programs at the federal level that may affect the price of traditional power generation, as well as ongoing changes at the state level to incentivize renewables.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine the current status of renewable energy use in the U.S.
  2. Identify changes in environmental programs and renewable energy incentives under the Trump Administration
  3. Explore how clients (residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, governmental) can benefit from current programs and investment opportunities
  4. Analyze various changes at the state level intended to incentivize renewables
