K&L Gates’ Energy Storage Handbook: Volume 6

Now Available Online!

As a courtesy to our clients and friends, the K&L Gates Power practice has updated the Energy Storage Handbook.

This Energy Storage Handbook is designed to be a basic primer on what energy storage is, how federal and state governments regulate it, and what sorts of issues are encountered when such projects are financed and developed. While this Handbook is not meant to be a definitive catalog of every energy storage law and issue existing in today’s marketplace, we have endeavored to highlight the most common development and regulatory matters our clients face and the industries we serve. We will continue to update this Handbook periodically as additional states and stakeholders continue to address the implementation of energy storage resources in the marketplace.

We hope you find it useful and welcome your feedback.

New in Volume 6:

  • Completely refreshed FERC and ISO/RTO sections, including FERC Order 2222.
  • Hydrogen storage? It’s getting close.
  • Avoiding disputes in battery supply agreements.
  • New states, including Virginia and South Carolina.
  • The latest with PJM’s capacity rules.

The Energizer – Volume 78

By: Buck B. Endemann, Daniel S. Cohen, Molly K. Barker, Olivia B. Mora, Abraham F. Johns, Natalie J. Reid, Matthew P. Clark

A biweekly update on clean technology applications, distributed energy resources, and other innovative technologies in the renewable energy and clean transport sector.

There is a lot of buzz around cleantech, distributed energy resources (“DERs”), microgrids, and other technological innovations in the renewable energy and clean transport industries. As these innovations develop, energy markets will undergo substantial changes to which consumer and industry participants alike will need to adapt and leverage. Every other week, K&L Gates’ The Energizer will highlight emerging issues or stories relating to the use of DERs, energy storage, emerging technologies, hydrogen, and other innovations driving the energy and clean transportation industries forward.

Eye on the Election: Potential Impact on Tax Incentives for Power and Related Industries

Authors: Elizabeth C. Crouse, Mary Burke Baker, Jared D. Mobley, Joel D. Almquist, and Lauren M. Flynn

There is little doubt that the outcome of the 3 November federal election will be consequential for much of America, and that the consequences are likely to be very different depending on who sits in the Oval Office and the Senate after the inauguration. Of all the industries that employ Americans, the power and related industries such as oil and gas, carbon capture, and electric vehicles may experience the starkest consequences.

K&L Gates Releases The H2 Handbook, Launches Global Hydrogen Practice

Hydrogen is on the rise as a major energy source and has the potential to play a significant role in reducing carbon emissions and slowing climate change. Like other sources of energy, commercial-scale hydrogen will require clear, informed, and transparent regulatory regimes at the local, national, and international levels. These regimes will need to balance hydrogen’s unique features and a desire to build out a robust hydrogen infrastructure that facilitates the penetration of hydrogen as a major global energy source.

To address the rapidly emerging hydrogen economy, K&L Gates lawyers and public policy professionals from a broad cross-section of our global offices and practices have produced The H2 Handbook – a unique, comprehensive, and free resource that explores the legal, regulatory, policy, and commercial issues impacting the future of hydrogen throughout the world.
