Renewable Energy Storage: Implementing Projects, Overcoming Co-Location Challenges, and Mitigating Risks
Recording of a 90-minute premium CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide energy counsel on the legal issues involved in the implementation of energy storage projects. The panel will discuss the markets, regulatory landscape, and legal challenges with energy storage, including obstacles that may arise when co-locating battery projects with wind and solar, and provide tips on how to draft and negotiate contracts for the implementation of such projects.
- Energy storage markets, economics, and regulatory landscape
- Contracting for energy storage projects
- Types of contracts and contract structure
- Co-location of battery projects with wind and solar
- Whether to co-locate
- Key issues
The panel will review these and other essential matters:
- How is energy storage being used today?
- What are counsel's key considerations when determining whether to co-locate renewable energy storage?
- How does the size of a renewable project impact the legal risks and challenges of energy storage?
