The Energizer – Volume 110

By: Buck B. EndemannMatthew P. ClarkNathan C. HoweNatalie J. ReidDavid WangOlivia C. Ashé

There is a lot of buzz around clean technology, distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids, and other technological innovations in the renewable energy and clean transport industries and how these developments can contribute to solving longstanding environmental justice issues. As these innovations develop, energy markets will undergo substantial changes to which consumers 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 industry forward.

Heightened Scrutiny of Director Positions by FERC and DOJ

U.S. Energy, Infrastructure, and Resources Alert

By: Ruta K. SkucasKimberly B. FrankDrew MannJennifer L. MersingChimera N. Thompson

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the Department of Justice recently issued orders and statements demonstrating concerns related to director positions and potentially interlocking directorates. These actions together signal greater attention paid to the identities and affiliations of directors serving on corporate boards. Going forward, companies should carefully review the composition of their (and their upstream owners’) board of directors to confirm they are in compliance with FERC and DOJ regulatory requirements.

Pennsylvania’s Growing Electric Vehicle Charging Network: What’s All the Buzz About NEVI Plans?

By: Brianna K. EdwardsThomas R. DeCesarBuck B. EndemannTad J. MacfarlanPierce RichardsonNathan C. Howe

With electric vehicles (EVs) on the rise, recent federal legislative and policy initiatives have prompted states to develop related infrastructure plans. These plans will provide for the greater connectivity required to support the future of EV transportation. As state plans are approved and implemented, new legal issues will likely develop.

On 15 November 2021, President Biden signed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), which directs funding to state and local governments for transportation improvement programs, including developing and expanding EV infrastructure. Under the BIL, each state was required to submit a National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure plan to the U.S. Department of Transportation by 1 August 2022.

The Tax Credit Revolution: What You Need to Know About How the IRA Will Impact Insurance for Tax Credit Risks

Tax insurance provides renewable energy developers and tax equity investors with a cost-effective risk mitigation tool to protect taxpayers against the loss of renewable energy tax credits in the event of a successful IRS challenge.
