Powering Alternative Energy Projects and Initiatives
The solar and renewable energy industries account for more than a third of the venture capital invested in the U.S. energy sector, and, as the industries continue to evolve, new technologies and regulations, and expanded funding opportunities, will require heightened legal and regulatory support.
For over 25 years, Manatt has been at the forefront of law firms working to align clean energy technological innovation with public policy. Harnessing Manatt's strength in government relations and policy development, our Climate Change group has been actively engaged in the regulatory and legislative debate over the implementation of greenhouse gas emissions reduction legislation. We have also been advising companies, large consumer groups and governmental entities affected by the regulation of greenhouse gas emissions.
