Crowell & Moring handles the difficult issues confronting development and financing of renewable projects. Our highly-ranked attorneys provide strategic advice for the transactions and the regulatory strategy to implement renewables projects, energy storage projects and related interconnection facilities and market products. We structure the project contracts for renewables projects large and small, negotiate strategic ventures with innovators in the renewables space and work with emerging companies to create revenue streams for new products. Our attorneys are well-recognized for their work both in renewable energy experience and climate change and finance.

The majority of the firm's energy work is in and around wind, solar, biomass, hydro and other renewables and clean technologies. We have negotiated nearly 2.5 GW of wind turbine supply arrangements in the past 3 years alone and have been involved in  numerous renewable project acquisitions and dispositions.

Our energy team’s work extends beyond the USA and into Latin America and Asia. While we represent the leading players in the renewables space (including developers, yield cos, merchant generators and transmission companies, investor-owned utilities and trade associations), we also are proud of our depth in representing universities, other educational institutions, industrials and others for whom energy is not their core business but who turn to our firm’s deep cross-disciplinary knowledge to provide wise counsel in energy matters.

Representative Engagements:

  • Represented a major wind developer in a 2.46 W of master turbine producer agreements.
  • Represented NRG Yield, Inc. in $250 million investment in a partnership to acquire residential and distributed solar assets.
  • Represented a major independent power developer in negotiating a build-transfer agreement for a 150 MW wind facility.
  • Represented a joint venture in the acquisition of five hydroelectric facilities with an aggregate capacity of 94 MW.
  • Represented numerous buyers and sellers in negotiating power purchase agreements for wind, solar, hydro and biomass projects.
