We regularly assist clients with a variety of issues facing the energy industry, in particular looking at renewables but also more conventional energy supply chain issues. We act for a large number of landowners, developers or businesses who either have access to the raw materials for renewable energy or the specialist knowledge to exploit it.
Our team advises clients in connection with wind power projects, anaerobic digestion, waste powered combined heat and power plants and other renewable energy types. This includes advising on wind and solar farm option agreements, power purchase agreements, outsourcing and supply agreements, construction and engineering contracts, and planning and environmental issues arising from onshore wind farms and solar panels.
With the decarbonisation agenda and mass-electrification plans now picking up the pace, our commercial property team also advise UK land owners and developers on options, leases, acquisitions and disposals of clean energy projects. These typically focus on energy storage sites which are comprised of either exclusive battery energy storage systems or co-located energy storage projects. Our experienced team is on hand to advise on all real estate, corporate transactional, financing, planning, agricultural and construction aspects of these projects.
Whether you are a landowner who has been approached by a developer, a developer seeking to secure a new project, inject capital and/or take the risk of a new scheme or a funder considering financing a renewable or clean energy project, it is equally important that you receive legal advice from specialists who understand the issues.
We work closely with our experienced teams and our combined specialist knowledge of commercial property and agricultural issues, environmental and planning law, minerals and waste and corporate law means that potential clients can be assured that they will be getting the benefit of specialist, technically sound and commercially driven advice.
