Renewable energy continues to grow as a preferred alternative energy source and with it comes increased governmental regulation and control as well as complex cutting-edge technological advances. Our nationally rated renewable energy team has extensive experience in the renewable energy sector. Our specialist advice spans all aspects of renewable energy work from inception of a project through to planning, acquisition, financing, construction, regulation, commissioning, grid-connection and subsequent operation of plants and facilities.
Priscilla Hall heads the team, contributing experience and knowledge gained from over 15 years spent working in the renewable energy sector.
The team has vast expertise in structuring the legal, regulatory and commercial arrangements or developing projects in most renewable technologies including onshore wind, solar, biomass, waste to energy and, anaerobic digestion. Our work covers everything from solar photovoltaic panels on public-sector housing in return for a share of the Feed-in Tariff (FIT), to building a biomass power plant using wood imported from South America – or even paying someone else to build a windfarm overseas in return for carbon credits in the UK. We act for a wide range of clients including landowners, developers, contractors and funders.
The team comprises specialists from across the firm, who have particular expertise in renewable energy from our real estate, real estate finance, construction, corporate, planning, environmental, intellectual property and banking departments. We provide a “one stop shop” for our renewable energy clients by delivering seamless, sector-focussed legal advice. We understand our clients’ businesses and the markets in which they operate.
Our membership of industry bodies extends to RenewableUK, RegenSW and the Renewable Energy Association.
We pride ourselves on our high levels of client service and our ability to “think as a client” delivering added value services. Above all, we aim to develop long-standing relationships with our clients, bringing long-term proven track record in renewable energy projects, a broad perspective and cost-efficiency to a project and helping our clients in achieving their commercial aims.
