Our Renewables, Energy & Resources Group has an extensive pedigree of acting in the sector. Our lawyers have been experts in the sector for years, and have not simply 'reinvented' themselves as sector specialists in order to jump on the bandwagon. Many of our Group have in-house experience within the energy industry, and this in-depth knowledge and experience means we have the technical and commercial skills necessary to deal with complex, innovative and practical legal and commercial issues.
The Group advises clients on all aspects of projects, from site selection and acquisition, through to construction and operation, with connection and energy purchase agreements also covered. In addition, we help our clients with a wide range of non-project related activities, such as regulated industry code matters, energy supply, acquisitions and disposals. We have an enviable client base in the sector, and regularly advise utility companies, gas and electricity transmission and distribution companies, power generators and suppliers, LNG terminal operators and shippers, energy from waste developers, water companies, project companies, commercial banks, local authorities and government agencies. This means our clients benefit from the broad perspective that the Group bring to their projects.
The Group also includes a range of specialists with experience in both energy and accommodation (including housing) projects, who provide advice on the legal options, delivery and funding structures available to achieve energy efficiency in residential and commercial buildings. We advise on asset and estate rationalisation, asset management, energy performance contracting and Green Deal.
