We've been working with clients on the production of electricity from fossil fuels (such as gas or coal), nuclear and renewables (such as solar, wind, anaerobic digestion, energy from waste and biomass) for over twenty years.
Our lawyers provide sector-focused project, transactional and regulatory advice to utilities, developers and funders in relation to the planning, site acquisition, project development, funding, operation and decommissioning of generation plants. We also act for contractors and others clients supporting development projects, such as landowners, network businesses, equipment providers and Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) contractors.
We advise on all aspects of the project life cycle from planning and site formation (including land options, leases, planning consents and grid connection), project development, negotiating finance and procurement contracts, to operation, maintenance and decommissioning of generation plant, as well as advising on power offtake contracts and accreditation for subsidies.
We are one of the few firms that has a market-leading reputation on merchant energy from waste projects and anaerobic digestion projects – advising funders, developers/sponsors, fuel suppliers and EPC contractors.
With offices in all major European jurisdictions, our renewable energy experience extends across borders, with in-depth expertise in all of Europe's major economies. Our work ranges from advising clients at the cutting edge of distributed generation and system intelligence to contextualising changes to local energy regulatory regimes.
