Our energy consumption practice centres around the provision of gas, electricity and heat to end-users (domestic, commercial and industrial), maximising the efficient usage of energy and new energy service models, such as Energy Service Companies (ESCOs), Multi-Utility Services Companies (MUSCOs), PipeCos and Community Energy Companies.
Our clients come to us because we have in-depth knowledge of energy supply issues, having advised large integrated utilities and small independent energy suppliers on their continuing business, as well as new start-ups.
We have extensive experience of energy efficiency, having advised on institutional and regulatory structures and funding structures for international multi-lateral organisations and funders as well as providers, funders and users on projects including for commercial buildings, schools, hospitals and universities.
Our leading heat practice advises funders, new entrants, developers, local authorities and occupiers on heat supply arrangements, system extensions and delivery models.
We are leading developments in smart grid, storage technologies and power management, including demand-side response, energy efficiency and energy balancing, and new business models for the delivery of energy services.
