The presentation is intended to address developments in law and policy on the federal and state levels affecting renewable energy initiatives. It will also give a brief overview of developments in law and policy on the federal and state levels affecting renewable energy initiatives, with a focus on changes since the 2016 election.  

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.

Today’s presentation provides an update to the 2016 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 incentives for renewables.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn about the popularity and current status of renewable energy use in the U.S. continuing after the 2016 election
  2. Identify changes in environmental programs and renewable energy incentives following the 2016 election
  3. Explore ways for clients (residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, governmental) to take advantage of current programs and investment opportunities
  4. Discuss specific programs designed to spur the popularity and availability of renewable energy sources, using New York as a guide; touch on states that are discouraging renewable development 
  5. Obtain practice tips related to power purchase agreements, engineering procurement and construction contracts and solar leases
