Case Studies: Renewable Energy

Ethanol Industry Group

Leading a grassroots effort on behalf of the ethanol industry to promote reforms of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The goal of the campaign was and continues to be to generate media coverage through op-eds and editorials in targeted states and congressional districts across the country. Generated nearly two dozen placements in newspapers ranging from the Orlando Sentinel and Detroit Free Press to the Denver Post and Dallas Morning News.

Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium

Long-term representation of a consortium of industry and university partners that helped to shape the vision for a photovoltaics (PV) manufacturing program to reducing the cost of producing solar cells, PV components, and balance of systems hardware to drive solar PV to grid parity, unleashing this source of clean energy and establishing globally competitive PV manufacturing in the United States. Through our efforts, the client’s proposed PV manufacturing initiative became of high interest to the U.S. Department of Energy, ultimately winning it a $60+ million dollar grant to implement the program.
