Course Materials

This CLE course will provide counsel to companies considering or involved in renewable energy projects with guidance on federal tax considerations. The panel will offer their best practices for strategic tax planning on renewable energy projects.


The renewable energy sector continues to grow, and new products are emerging and existing products are evolving to meet the demand. ATRA provides an extension of the investment tax credit, a key mechanism driving growth in the industry.

The Treasury Department, under Sec. 1603 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is no longer accepting applications for its grant program. However, counsel to renewable energy companies who previously applied must stay on top of the latest developments with applications and potential awards.

Practitioners must grasp complex tax laws to leverage available tax credits and incentives available for renewable energy projects. Counsel to companies and developers can maximize the available benefits, while performing effective tax planning as a number of tax credits are set to expire.

Listen as our experienced panel of energy counsel and tax professionals examines the tax credits, grants and incentives that are available to companies in the renewable energy industry, offers best practices for strategic tax planning, and provides guidance for how to protect grandfathered grant projects.



  1. Federal tax incentives and deadlines
  2. Protecting grandfathered grant projects
  3. Best practices for tax structuring


The panel will review these and other key questions:

  • What are the deadlines project developers and their counsel must be aware of when structuring renewable energy projects?
  • What steps should counsel take to protect grandfathered grant projects?
  • What are the key steps for counsel seeking to take advantage of tax credits and incentives available to help finance renewable energy projects?

Following the speaker presentations, you'll have an opportunity to get answers to your specific questions during the interactive Q&A.
