Energy Technology

LEADERSHIP: Thomas P. Dwyer

With the world seeking new energy sources and consumers looking for cleaner and more efficient alternatives, energy technology has never been as advanced or dynamic as it is today. Pepper Hamilton is at the forefront of energy technology, combining the resources of our Energy Industry and Technology practice groups to advise clients on cutting-edge technology and technology-related projects.

We represent clients in connection with a broad range of energy technologies, including renewable energy generation, energy storage, energy efficiency, smart-grid applications, high-performance buildings, carbon trading, solar technology, refinery waste technology, water efficiency and water filtration technology, fuel cells, high-performing materials, bio-materials, clean coal, energy sensors, and biofuels.

Our strategic knowledge of the energy and natural resources industry allows Pepper to effectively and seamlessly counsel emerging energy technology companies, project development companies and more mature energy companies on technology-related projects, as well as corporate development, growth, and exits via mergers, acquisitions or IPOs. We also advise large strategic investors, private equity firms, venture capital firms and energy project investors with respect to investments in or the purchase of energy technology companies.

Our signature event is the Mid-Atlantic Energy Technology Forum, hosted in partnership with the Cleantech Alliance Mid-Atlantic. This event, which has been held annually since 2009, brings together players in the industry and emerging companies to discuss the latest trends in energy technology and challenges to innovation.
