To that end, our project work is performed:
- Effectively: properly structured for maximum ROI
- Quickly: done in the least amount of time
- Responsibly: not exposing stakeholders to litigation
- Cost Efficiently: completed at the best possible value
FROM CONCEPTION TO COMPLETION
Clean Energy projects are complex. Our approach is simple.
To ensure success, we become part of your project team. We work to understand your business, strategy, goals, and of course, what you want to accomplish on each project. We invest in your success, by partnering with you to successfully structure and complete your projects on time and on budget. In short, we are high touch, high service.
SERVICES BY STAGE
While clients often hire us to help them throughout their project's lifecycle, we are also called in to help with one or more discreet stages. Here is a representative list of our services by stage.
We bring a deep understanding of the technologies used to generate, transport and, manage Clean Energy, including:
- Natural Gas
- Retail Power Markets
- Energy Storage
- Coal Gasification and Liquefaction
- Energy Efficiency
- Smart Grid
- Combined Heat & Power
- Building Integrated Energy
- Power Management
Kilpatrick lawyers work on a wide range of project types and size projects. Here are some representative projects:
Distributed Energy Systems — These are smaller scale energy production systems, typically 5KW to 40MW, using solar, wind, biomass, ground-source geothermal, combined heat and power systems and fuel cells sited at the point of use. These projects start with better economics than most utility-scale energy projects because they offset retail electric rates rather than wholesale power prices. We have developed an approach that streamlines the transaction process to efficiently manage legal and financial risk. This approach dramatically increase returns for developers and investors.
Innovative Financing Structures — Financing clean energy projects can be challenging. Integrating traditional finance with incentives, tax equity finance, and dynamic regulatory assets like SRECs require sophisticated transactional planning and execution. We are helping develop new and innovative approaches to financing clean energy projects by applying structured finance principles as well as hybrid financing vehicles. These new approaches allow developers and investors to realize excellent returns by efficiently cultivating large portfolios of small building-integrated energy projects.
Multi-Technology Projects — As the clean energy industry evolves more developers and investors have recognized the value of combining generation types or building the need for power associated with a new generation project. These are projects like matching base-load biomass generation with peak-matching solar or a set of wind turbines with a reverse osmosis water purification system. Our lawyers draw on the breadth of our experience across new energy technologies combined with our knowledge of energy markets, regulation and the related development challenges to creatively and efficiently navigate the challenges.
