Insights: Webinars De-Risking Renewable Energy Projects: Identifying and Avoiding Contractual, Economic, Legal, and Regulatory Pitfalls

CLE Webinar

Tuesday, March 12, 2024


The world’s renewable energy grew by 50% to 510 gigawatts (GW) in 2023, the 22nd year in a row that renewable capacity additions set a record, according to figures from the recent IEA Report of January 2024. The Inflation Reduction Act and like programs are fueling the boom in the pipeline for renewable energy projects. By some estimates, there are 4,000 projects in the United States alone that are either being built or are in the planning phase.

The risk profile for projects in a dynamic renewable energy market are substantial. These risks include finance risk (owing to a volatile interest rate environment and new risk rating mechanisms), construction risk (supply chain interruptions, skilled labor shortages, delay and cost overruns), regulatory risk (lengthy interconnection queues, public policy shortcomings, and rudderless grid planning among other things), political risk (election year changes could impact current tax credits), legal risk (voluntary and mandatory ESG disclosures and human rights and forced labor issues), and a myriad of other potential issues.

This 90-minute webinar is designed to identify major risk factors for renewable energy projects and touch upon potential mitigation strategies. Please join Kilpatrick attorneys Thomas Allen, Brian Gaudet, Adria Perez, and Benjamin Smith and outside economic experts Carlos Pabón-Agudelo and Jeffrey Bloczynski from Infrastructure Economic Consulting, LLC for this timely discussion.

Do not use full-screen mode to view or respond to poll questions; and (3) Use a supported browser which includes Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Safari (Mac).

MCLE credit approval is pending. Credit generally is submitted, or certificates issued, within 60 days of post-program approval. CLE approval can take up to 90 days. Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP will apply for CLE credit when eligible in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. For states not listed, a Certificate of Attendance that lawyers may use to claim credit based on reciprocity or self-apply for credit will be provided.

To receive on-demand credit, viewers must use one of the recommended browsers which allows time stamps to be captured. We recommend you complete the program in one format only (live or on-demand) since many states do not allow attorneys to earn live and on-demand credit for the same program in the same compliance period.
