Renewables: Energy Storage and Distributed Resources

As the adoption of non-dispatchable renewable energy resources like wind and solar spreads globally to meet the growing demand for clean energy sources, so has the adoption of emerging technologies to store and manage energy supplies. Across the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia, our global energy storage team members have provided legal and policy advice and representation to industry and thought leaders in energy storage for over a decade.

We have helped developers of lithium-ion battery, pumped hydropower, flywheel, and compressed air storage projects through the development, regulatory, and transactional aspects of deploying those technologies. We have also helped our clients develop and protect their intellectual property in some of the leading new mechanical, thermal, and electromechanical storage technologies. And when necessary, we have also helped our battery and storage clients protect their rights and remedies in litigation and dispute resolution.

We combine our historical perspective in the energy storage industry with a deep involvement in the traditional and renewable energy sectors, as well as extensive knowledge of the unique energy requirements of the natural resources sector. We assist technology and product suppliers, project developers, contractors, end-users, and policy-makers in navigating the new demands and challenges in energy storage, including the pairing of storage with renewable and traditional energy assets.

We draw on a cohesive team of lawyers from multiple disciplines and global experience to provide strategic advice matched to our clients’ business goals. Our energy storage lawyers help companies secure grants, venture capital, and other sources of financing; establish strategic alliances; oversee project development; commercialize their products through technology licensing; protect their intellectual property; overcome environmental and energy regulatory hurdles; represent storage owners in state and federal regulatory proceedings; and influence legislative and policy development in the energy storage area.
