Webinar: State Incentives for Renewable Energy
Policy makers at the federal level have spent billions in tax credits, grants and other incentives to encourage the development of renewable energy, but what have state governments done? Jonathan Wilson, part of the Taylor English Duma Renewable Energy Finance team will moderate a panel discussion sponsored by the American Bar Association to answer that question. The panel will explore some of the key policy initiatives in state government to encourage capital formation and the development of new sources of electric generation from renewable sources, including renewable portfolio standards (“RPS”), feed-in tariffs and other state tax incentives. The webinar runs from 12 noon to 1:30 pm (eastern time) on Tuesday, May 4, 2010.

Konieczny, Clerk, DC Court of Appeals, Washington, DC Lisa Novins, Law Clerk, State of Vermont Judiciary, Montpelier, VT Brandon N. Robinson, Balch & Bingham LLP, Birmingham, AL Ann B.
