Renewable Energy

Thrive Toward a Green Future

As renewable energy companies expand and bring new products to market, it’s crucial to efficiently tap your resources while competing with existing technologies. Your business should aim to strategically secure tax incentives and credits, wade through regulations, and attract venture capital and government grants.

Our professionals share your entrepreneurial spirit and want to help you plan for what’s next.

Unbound from big-firm conventions, our forward-thinking business solutions empower your company to focus on what matters most: creating a clean, sustainable future.

Conquer Industry Challenges

Discover how our industry-smart services can help you confront these and other industry issues.

Execute Deals Confidently

As the landscape of renewable energy evolves, sales or acquisitions continue to increase in frequency. It’s crucial to understand your current value compared to your competition. Before engaging with investors, you should define your personal and business goals, as well as options for potential investments and their implications.

Prepare your business for any deal with our Transactions, Valuations, Due Diligence, and M&A Tax Services.

Protect Assets and Data

Renewable energy companies and their management teams are frequent targets of cyberattacks. With opportunities for cybercriminals to infiltrate your system and cause costly breaches increasing, testing your current systems can evaluate your safety levels and identify controls you need for further preventive measures.

Protect your business, assets, and data with our Cybersecurity Services.

HLBV Accounting

Renewable energy projects backed by partnerships often use the hypothetical liquidation at book value (HLBV) accounting method to determine the correct allocation of a project’s net assets. The complex process, however, is time-consuming, with various partners’ concerns in play. We can help your team develop a thorough understanding of the accounting policy elections while reviewing internal rates of return, waterfall provisions, and other considerations.

Tackle your projects’ accounting needs with our Credits & Incentives, Information Reporting & Withholding Tax, and Accounting Methods Services.

Purchase Power Agreements

Purchase power agreements (PPAs) that define the commercial sales terms of electricity are integral to your business’ success. It’s crucial that agreements are thoroughly analyzed to identify all opportunities for your company before the agreement becomes binding.

Confidently enter sales with a solid PPA with our Contract Compliance Assurance Services.

Meet Tax Obligations

Where you build operation sites, manufacturing facilities, and asset generators has a major impact on your business. Every state and local tax jurisdiction has its own regulations and intricacies, so it’s important to determine how they affect your tax obligations and potential for growth.
