Energy & Clean Tech Connections - May 2011


In the May edition of Energy & Clean Tech Connections, we’ve gathered recent information from a wide variety of sources in an effort to keep you abreast of what’s new in the world of clean energy. We draw your attention to the latest industry developments, news from local governments to Capitol Hill, grant opportunities, and upcoming events.

This month, the Energy & Clean Technology Practice Group would like to congratulate Mintz Levin’s client, EnerNOC. EnerNOC, a Boston-based energy management company, announced Wednesday, May 18, that it will provide demand response services to Electricity North West Limited, a major distribution network operator in England that delivers power to 2.4 million domestic and industrial customers. This five-year agreement will promote efficient electricity use within Electricity North West’s service territory and enable regional businesses and organizations to be paid to reduce their energy usage when capacity is needed to support the grid. Furthermore, we would like to congratulate our good friend Ian Bowles, former energy and environment secretary under Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, on his new consulting and project development venture, Rhumb Line Energy, LLC.
