  4. Reducing the Cost of Capital for Renewables: Tax Credits, MLPs, REITs and others

    Wednesday, November 20, 2013

    Wednesday, November 20th: 8-9 a.m.
    New York University School of Law
    Faculty Club, D'Agostino Hall
    108 W 3rd St.
    New York, NY
    FREE
    RSVP

    CLE Available. Breakfast Provided.

    Panelists:
    John Rhodes, President, New York State Energy Research and Development Authority
    Eli Katz, Partner, Chadbourne & Park LLP

    Moderated by Paul Francis, Distinguished Senior Fellow, NYU Guarini Center

    The primary mode of federal fiscal incentives for renewable power is through the Production and Investment Tax Credits. However, many renewable energy developers are not fully able to utilize these credits by themselves and so use tax equity to raise capital, thus increasing the cost of capital for their projects. There has been considerable discussion recently about using corporate structures (Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)) that pay no federal tax as a way to decrease the cost, and increase the accessibility of capital for renewable projects.

    This panel will examine these multiple possibilities for renewable finance and discuss which might be the most effective method to decrease the cost of capital.

  5. Fuel Cells for Portable Power

    Tuesday, July 17, 2012

    Fuel cells for portable power show great promise in meeting the ever-increasing power and energy requirements of portable electronic devices and are quickly gaining market share. However, large scale commercialization will depend upon improvements to fuel cell performance and durability, as well as cost reductions. This webinar will focus on recent R&D advancements in direct methanol fuels and their use in portable power. Researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory will discuss advanced materials and the development of new methanol oxidation catalysts, hydrocarbon membranes with reduced methanol crossover, and improvements to component durability. Researchers at the University of North Florida will focus on a "passive-water recovery" membrane electrode assembly (MEA), which eliminates the water recovery components, and results in a small, lightweight direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) power supply. Finally, researchers at Arkema will present their polymer electrolyte membrane design for direct methanol fuels which blends poly(vinylidene fluoride) with a sulfonated polyelectrolyte. Register to attend the webinar.
  6. How Will The New Article 10 Law Affect Your Business?

    Monday, April 02, 2012

    Albany

    Please join us for a seminar at Albany Law School on New York State’s Article 10 – The Siting Statute
    for Electric Generating Facilities over 25 MW. As part of the Government Law Center's work with the
    New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) under a four-year incentive
    to create sustainable networks that support early-stage renewable and clean energy companies, we are
    pleased to announce the next seminar in the Renewable Energy Entrepreneurial Seminar Series (REESS).
    “The New Article 10: Siting Process for Electric Generating Facilities” will be offered on April 2,
    2012 at Albany Law School from 12:00 to 1:30 PM in the 3rd Floor Boardroom of the 2000 Building.
    This event is free and open to the public, and lunch will be provided.

    This educational seminar will provide an overview of the new law governing the siting of electric
    generating facilities in New York. Article 10 will control the siting of electric generating facilities with a
    capacity of 25 MW or more, and provides for review of applications to construct, operate and/or modify
    electric generating facilities. Under Article 10, any projects with capacity of 25 MW or more will be
    required to obtain a certificate of environmental compatibility and public need. In addition, the new
    application process will require a description of the proposed facility, demonstrate compliance with
    various health and safety regulations, and provide a comprehensive review of the demographic and
    economic description of the community within which the facility will be located.

    The seminar is intended to educate attendees about the new Article 10 siting process and the process for
    obtaining certification. Specifically, the seminar will discuss how the process applies to smaller wind
    energy projects that fall within the 25 MW threshold. The panelists will be posed with a series of
    hypothetical questions to provide a practical analysis of the law. The panelists will include: Terresa
    Bakner, Esq., Partner, Whiteman Osterman & Hanna; Hon. Kimberly Harriman, Esq., Administrative
    Law Judge, Department of Public Service; William Little, Esq., Office of General Counsel, Department of
    Environmental Conservation; Elizabeth Grisaru, Esq., Of Counsel, Whiteman Osterman & Hanna.

    For more information or to RSVP, please call
    D’vora Koelling at 518.445.2329 or email her at
    dkoel@albanylaw.edu by March 30, 2012.
    We look forward to seeing you on April 2nd.
