On behalf of the Energy and Renewables Teams at Pierce Atwood LLP we're excited to welcome you to the latest addition to the Pierce Atwood stable of blogs, on renewable energy policies and projects in New England. Our posts will highlight key developments in the region, and explore how state and federal policies impact the development of renewable energy in the New England states.
We'll draw on the experience of the attorneys in Pierce Atwood’s renewable energy practice, who are active in all aspects of the renewable energy sector throughout the United States and abroad. We have assisted developers with securing regulatory authorizations for large scale wind, hydro, biomass/biogas and co-generation facilities, as well as emergent tidal power development projects along the coast of Maine. With offices in Washington, DC, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, we benefit from our principal location in Maine, a state with a long history of hydro and biomass development, which is also recognized for its vast wind and tidal power potential. We have advised, among many others, companies developing cutting edge tidal power generation technology designed to harness the surging tides along the coast of Maine, and European and African governments on the development of feed-in tariffs and green trading mechanisms.
We've had a few weeks to kick the tires, so check out our earlier posts to get a sense of what we're about. Look for our posts twice a week, for now, but if you need more, check out our link feed, to track the renewable energy news we're following. The information posted here does not constitute legal advice (we're lawyers; we can't resist disclaimers), but it does reflect our keen interest in the complex and important developments taking place in the renewable energy sector.
