K&L Gates Distinguished Speaker Series: A Conversation on the Sustainable Economy with Dawn Weisz

Tuesday
4 May 2021
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET

Please join us for the next conversation in our sustainability-focused Distinguished Speaker Series, where we sit down with leaders in the field of sustainable economy to discuss industry trends and opportunities.

The featured speaker for this webinar will be Dawn Weisz. Dawn is the CEO of MCE Clean Energy, a public agency and not-for-profit electricity provider that gives customers the choice of having 50% to 100% of their electricity supplied from clean, renewable sources such as solar, wind, bioenergy, and hydroelectric at competitive rates.  As CEO, Dawn is responsible for the vision, strategy, and leadership of the company. Under her leadership, MCE became the first community choice program to earn an investment-grade credit rating and now provides service to more than 480,000 customers and over a million residents and businesses in 36 member communities across four Bay Area counties. Dawn has more than 25 years of experience developing and managing renewable energy and energy efficiency programs while working for leading public agencies in the field. Previously, she was a Principle Planner with the County of Marin, where she managed energy and sustainability initiatives. She also previously served as the Executive Director for Sustainable North Bay, and prior to that, worked as a labor and environmental justice organizer in Los Angeles. She has also received awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Power Association of Northern California and the U.S. Department of Energy. She currently serves as President of the California Community Choice Association.  

The program will be moderated by Elizabeth Crouse, a Partner and Practice Group Coordinator for the Power Group at K&L Gates.

The Energizer – Volume 87

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

There is a lot of buzz around clean technology, distributed energy resources (DERs), microgrids, and other technological innovations in 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.

The Sun Also Rises: Congress Votes to Stimulate the Renewable Energy, Efficiency, Carbon Capture, and Storage Industries

By: Elizabeth C. CrouseMary Burke BakerLaurie B. PurpuroElias B. Hinckley, and David P. Hattery

On 21 December 2020, the shortest day of the year in North America, the U.S. Congress passed a historic stimulus package. Among its more than 5000 pages, the bill includes important, if not quite historic, clean energy-related provisions ranging from new and extended tax incentives to government programs for research and development. Assuming the legislation becomes law, a new day for U.S. carbon capture, offshore wind, and many more renewable energy technologies may dawn.

Blending Hydrogen Into U.S. Natural Gas Pipelines: Three Issues to Resolve

By: David Wochner, Sandra Safro, Jennifer Bruneau Abbey, and Michael O’Neill

Members of our global Hydrogen team discuss three issues that need resolving around blending hydrogen gas into the natural gas stream, which could allow the U.S. energy industry to leverage existing natural gas pipelines and increase renewable energy output.

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.

Treasury Issues Carbon Capture Credit Proposed Regulations

Author: Elizabeth C. Crouse

Treasury is having a busy week! This afternoon, the U.S. Department of Treasury released proposed regulations under Code Section 45Q. Code Section 45Q provides for a U.S. federal income tax credit of 10% or 20% for carbon oxide sequestration and disposal in secure geologic storage, used as a tertiary injectant in a qualified enhanced oil or natural gas recovery project and then disposed of in secure geologic storage, or utilized algal or bacterial disposition, chemical conversion processes, or other methods, as provided in regulations.
