Renewable Energy Opportunities and Energy-Related Infrastructure Development
11:15 - 12:15 PM EST | International Litigation Track

Decades ago, developed nations began gradually shifting their societies away from fossil fuel energy and towards renewable solar, wind, or water-based resources. Recent trends show that renewable energy continues earning a growing share of the energy market. Today, advances in technology, coupled with increased interest of private equity and international governmental cooperation, have made renewable energy a staple of modern industry, innovation, and infrastructure. Global environmental concerns have also led to the creation of multilateral governmental infrastructure funds to help finance renewable energy infrastructure projects in developing nations. The panelists will draw on a broad range of experience and practice areas to examine the risks and opportunities for use of solar energy in Florida and Latin America for both, residential and utility scale facilities, as well as prospects for floating solar projects, the rise of the electric vehicle, electric charging stations and related infrastructure. Revitalized interest of private equity firms in the solar and wind energy spaces, financing options for renewable energy in addition to federal, state and local government treatment and incentives. Each of the mega-projects also come with a unique set of risks and high potential for disputes. The panel will address the various methods of executing renewable energy projects, mitigating litigation risks, and utilizing alternative dispute resolution methods.
