Arthur brings over three decades of expe­ri­ence in devel­op­ing inno­v­a­tive, robust solu­tions for com­plex ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal law and pol­i­cy issues.

Over his career, Arthur has held lead­er­ship roles in mul­ti­ple clean ener­gy com­pa­nies and trade asso­ci­a­tions. His insights on mar­kets, reg­u­la­tion, and pol­i­cy stem from his work on behalf of gov­ern­ment, util­i­ties, devel­op­ers, financiers, and oth­er clean ener­gy sec­tor inter­ests. He has helped resolve con­tro­ver­sial issues and improve out­comes for many mul­ti-stake­hold­er legal, reg­u­la­to­ry and pol­i­cy process­es, includ­ing nation­al and region­al renew­able ener­gy, mar­ket and trans­mis­sion initiatives.

Arthur has nego­ti­at­ed and obtained reg­u­la­to­ry approval for first-of-their-kind solar and stor­age con­tracts; secured prece­dent-set­ting ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal approvals for gen­er­a­tion and trans­mis­sion; and cleared obsta­cles to mul­ti-bil­lion dol­lar project financ­ing. He has also led nation­al­ly sig­nif­i­cant envi­ron­men­tal actions, includ­ing the clean-up of the Bol­sa Chi­ca wet­lands, which enabled its restora­tion as a key avian stopover along the Pacif­ic Flyway.

Arthur has taught ener­gy and envi­ron­men­tal law and pol­i­cy class­es and guest lec­tured at UC Berke­ley, Stan­ford and many oth­er schools.
