Our energy and climate change practice is guided by personal passion to see rapid, thoughtful, and equitable change in the way our country generates and uses energy. When I take on a new matter, I dive in 100%, bringing political savvy, attention to detail, and responsiveness to each client team that I join. With a broad range of experience in power and climate, I am equally at home advocating before state regulators, working with public agencies to secure project approvals, or sitting at the negotiations table.
Sarah Keane dedicates her practice to the clean energy transition and climate change, in transactional, regulatory and litigation contexts.
Sarah advises a wide range of project developers, investors, and sponsors regarding all aspects of project development, as well as energy-specific M&A, with a particular focus on renewable energy, electric transmission, energy storage, hydrogen, carbon sequestration, electric vehicles and clean mobility, microgrids, and campus energy systems. She drafts and negotiates purchase and sale agreements, power purchase agreements, interconnection agreements, and a variety of other project-related contracts. Collaborating closely with other members of the Firm, Sarah also assists energy and infrastructure project proponents in navigating the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and state counterparts, and in securing approvals under the full suite of local, state, and federal land use and environmental laws.
A leading advocate before state public utilities commissions (PUCs), air regulators, and other agencies, Sarah also represents energy project owners, environmental organizations, local government interests, and other parties in a variety of energy regulatory and climate change policy proceedings.
Sarah currently serves as Chair of the Board of Directors for GRID Alternatives Colorado, a unique and remarkable non-profit organization that brings clean energy and mobility solutions to low-income households and disadvantaged communities. She was previously an attorney at two large international law firms.
