As the United States moves toward its 2030 clean energy targets, energy storage resources offer unique and critical capabilities for the future management of the nation's natural gas and electric infrastructure. Electric storage—whether stand-alone or hybrid, utility-scale or behind the meter—presents challenges of rapidly evolving technologies and markets along with changing laws and regulations and unclear boundaries between the intersection of federal and state jurisdictions. In addition, conventional natural gas storage projects present a host of regulatory, rate, tariff, compliance and permitting issues.
Day Pitney's energy attorneys have a wide range of experience counseling clients as they navigate the complex and evolving legal issues relating to the siting, financing, development, interconnection and regulation of energy and natural gas storage projects across the country. Our attorneys are equally adept at advising clients in all stages of a project—from the initial meetings with regulatory staff to the operation of the project as well as handling the myriad regulatory, enforcement and compliance matters that routinely arise in the life cycle of a project.
Beyond our energy practice, Day Pitney attorneys offer skill in a range of additional legal services necessary for energy storage clients, from real estate and environmental matters to intellectual property and tax.
