Ice Miller LLP Wins IJGlobal 2017 North American Social Infrastructure and Overall Deal of the Year Award

Ice Miller LLP is proud to announce IJGlobal, a project finance and infrastructure journal, has recognized its work on The Ohio State University Comprehensive Energy Management Project as the 2017 North American Social Infrastructure and Overall Deal of the Year.
 
Ice Miller was an integral part of The Ohio State University legal team on a public-private partnership (P3) deal with a private concessionaire on a far-reaching transaction involving the university’s energy and utility systems. On April 7, 2017, The Ohio State University Board of Trustees approved the Comprehensive Energy Management Project, which leases the university’s energy assets to a private company.  
 
The deal provides for a 50-year lease agreement with Ohio State Energy Partners and includes a $1.015 billion upfront payment to the university and a $150 million commitment to support academics, including financial aid and compensation for faculty and staff. 
 
The deal, which is the largest higher education energy deal in the United States, positions the university to become an international leader in sustainability while providing new resources to advance teaching, learning and research.
 
“Ice Miller was proud to serve as legal counsel to the university on this innovative and complex transaction,” said Jeff Lewis, Ice Miller partner and lead of the P3 Group. “This deal brings significant revenue and resources to the university and could be a model concept for other universities.”
