Robert "Benji" Borowski is a member of the firm's Energy & Telecommunications, Cleantech and Renewable Energy Law, and Climate Strategy groups dedicated to helping clients achieve their legal, policy, and regulatory goals across those sectors. In his practice, he has worked with clients of all sizes and across a wide range of industries on a variety of energy issues. Benji has amassed state- and federal-level experience around the policies that drive regulations, the regulations that constrain markets, and markets within which stakeholders operate. His work has included advising private equity on the acquisition of industrial and electric generation assets, assisting large-scale consumers with financing for efficiency projects, and helping consumer-generator clients navigate the evolving energy markets through regulatory and policy advocacy.

Benji places particular emphasis on efficiency and renewable forms of energy: onshore and offshore wind, large- and small-scale hydro, marine hydrokinetic, biomass, and solar. His work in these fields includes legislative and administrative representation of solar power producers opposing an unfavorable rate design and assisting an innovative off-shore wind project receive regulatory approval. He has also assisted clients in certifying their energy projects as “renewable” under state renewable portfolio standards and advised them on maximizing the value of associated environmental attributes. In addition, Benji has been extensively involved in efforts to reduce energy costs across New England, especially through decreasing long-standing reliance on oil.
