Energy Efficiency and Conservation

We represent companies that work with electric utilities to encourage and subsidize energy conservation and energy efficiency measures. These clients provide a variety of services, including installation of efficient lighting and energy controls, energy audits, and management of utility rebate programs applicable to energy-saving appliances and equipment. We have advised a number of clients on disputes arising under the energy efficiency programs approved by particular states or public utility commissions. At the federal level, we represent manufacturers impacted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) efficiency standards. We also have represented manufacturers with respect to the DOE’s EnergyStar program.
