Federal Incentives Update

Hear a lively update on developments at the federal level affecting the renewable energy market.  A new administration and Congress take office in January with a new agenda. Renewable energy projects face deadlines to start construction to qualify for tax credits. Developers are making some common mistakes. Will the deadlines be extended again by Congress?  There are now more than 35 tax equity investors and renewable energy tax equity is more than a $13 billion market. Two key cases before the US claims court are being closely watched for their potential effect on solar tax basis issues. Several important topics remain in play with the IRS, including prepaid power contracts, series LLCs, and targeted partnership allocations.

Wanted: Dead or Alive? An Update on the Status of EPA's Clean Power Plan

The validity and merits of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan have been the focus of contentious debate—with a number of significant governmental and private entities seeking to uphold the Plan and others seeking to kill it.

What now? This presentation offers a prognosis for the Clean Power Plan.

The Waltz of the Five Es

Energy, the Economy and the Environment are intimately intertwined. Actions effecting one “E,” such as environmental policy, a major energy discovery or breakthrough, or economic recession, impact the other “Es,” often in unexpected ways. Energy Efficiency represents a major opportunity for reduced energy consumption and positive environmental impact. And thoughtful, objective and balanced energy Education helps the intentions of public policy to be reflected by actual outcomes.

What’s the prognosis for utility-scale solar C&I deals?
