Clean Tech

Federal policies, including tax incentives, loan guarantees, grants, research and development, and regulatory regimes, will create and sustain markets for new energy and environmental technologies.

Van Ness Feldman's diverse Clean Energy Technologies practice helps emerging growth companies and established industry leaders, as well as investors in clean tech ventures, realize their full potential by taking advantage of federal government policies, regulations and financial incentives.  Where no such policies exist, or where they need modification, we advocate on behalf of our clients before the Department of Energy, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the Environmental Protection Agency, and Congress.

Different from firms whose emphasis is intellectual property, venture financing or corporate formation, the value we provide lies in our deep familiarity with virtually every aspect of federal, state, and local energy, climate change, environmental, and natural resource policies.  Through our extensive network of relationships with key Congressional and Executive branch policy makers, and within the energy and manufacturing sector, we work with our clients to drive federal support to their disruptive and new technologies targeted at energy and industrial markets.

Recognizing that the key issues affecting successful clean technology project development demands not only a deep understanding of the critical laws and policies, but the highly nuanced practical, political and community relations aspects of complex, large-scale projects, Van Ness Feldman represents clients across a broad spectrum of technologies including wind, electric, and co-generation power; alternative/bio-fuels production; carbon sequestration; waste to steam incinerators and refineries; and the associated impacts of traditional resources.

Van Ness Feldman has significant experience assisting industry leaders who are developing, or investing in the development of, technologies, as well as companies who consume and use technologies such as:

  • enzymes for biofuel production
  • hydrogen fuel cells
  • advanced electric metering infrastructure
  • clean coal and carbon sequestration
  • green buildings and materials
  • renewable electricity generation
  • synfuel development
  • energy efficient products
  • enhanced yield feedstock crops
  • high-output LED lighting
