Alternative Energy

Sive, Paget & Riesel has decades of experience with the siting issues that commonly affect proposed energy projects, and has advised clients with regard to proposed wind farms, natural gas pipelines, and electricity transmission and distribution lines. The firm has represented alternative energy providers including resource recovery facilities in permitting matters. SPR has successfully litigated these issues in both state and federal courts as well as in administrative proceedings, and has advised clients seeking to promote emerging alternative energy technologies in the national and international markets.

SPR has for years been advancing the development of offshore wind in the New York Bight. We helped NYSERDA develop the New York State Offshore Wind Master Plan and its supporting studies, which underlie the State’s offshore wind energy goals. Today, the Firm guides critical infrastructure projects like the Arthur Kill Terminal, New York’s first proposed offshore wind pre-assembly port facility, through site acquisition and the environmental review and permitting process.
