K&L Gates Advises innogy on Acquisition of More Than 2,000 MW Onshore Wind Projects
Through the acquisition, innogy became the owner of more than 20 projects totaling in excess of 2,000 MW currently in various stages of development across eight states (Maine, Maryland, Montana, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wyoming), giving innogy a strong foundation for expansion into the U.S., one of the company’s key strategic growth areas. innogy’s first U.S. onshore wind project at Scioto Ridge in Ohio is targeted to start full construction in early 2019.
The K&L Gates team advising innogy Renewables US was led by partner Andrea Lucan, assisted by partners David Benson, Sang-yul Lee, Karrie Diaz, Will Keyser, William Holmes, David Hattery, Elizabeth Crouse, Steven Hill, Charles Purcell, James Lynch, and Alyssa Moir, and supported by associates Mark Hammes, Nolan Thomas, Virginia Chiao, Ben Tejblum, Erica Bakies, and Tad MacFarlan.
