This CLE course will provide counsel to companies considering or involved in renewable energy projects with guidance on the federal tax credits. The panel will also discuss the recent IRS guidance, the impact of COVID-19, and offer their best practices for taking advantage of the tax credits and other incentives as part of tax planning on renewable energy projects.


Federal tax credits are one of the primary financial incentives for owners of renewable energy projects, and the credits have been a crucial part of the rapid deployment of renewable energy across the U.S.

Recent extensions for the production tax credit (PTC) and investment tax credit (ITC) provide for a potential ramp up of project development and financing. Significant delays and limitations for project operations and supply caused by the coronavirus pandemic solidify the importance of securing federal tax credits when structuring deals.

It is critical for developers and investors (and their counsel) to understand the law and guidance regarding these credits to ensure that the credits will be available concerning their renewable energy projects.

Listen as our authoritative panel of energy tax professionals examines the benefits of the tax credits, the impact of COVID-19, and discusses the recent law changes, federal tax incentives, and IRS guidance. The panel will also offer considerations on structuring equity investments in projects so that developers and investors can reap the benefits of the credits.
