Project Development & Finance
While focusing on renewable power, clean fuels, fossil fuels, and energy consumption management, the Energy Team serves clients who develop, invest, or lend in the building, operation, or management of renewable energy projects. Our clients include companies at all stages of development — from publicly-traded companies developing or investing in multi-billion projects to mature mid-market development companies to young innovative companies raising venture capital and private equity.
Using our advanced expertise in bioenergy, biofuels, renewable chemicals, solar, data centers, and energy storage, the Energy Team has negotiated and structured contracts and agreements, including some of the largest solar power purchase agreements in the U.S. Our strong track record in creative and government financing has helped numerous clients qualify for federal loans and grants from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Agriculture as well as cross border financing from the U.S. Export-Import Bank, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, foreign export banks, and multi- and bi-lateral finance institutions.
