Description

Renewable energy continues to expand with increased penetrations of renewable power expected over the next decade. Energy storage has become an essential component.

The current state of the energy storage market has sparked interest from investors. Financing energy storage projects presents unique opportunities and regulatory and legal issues that must be identified by legal counsel.

Attorneys structuring deals to finance energy storage must negotiate critical points, identify elements to minimize risks, and comply with ITC rules, among other key challenges impacting the transaction.
