With energy security lying at heart of our economy, Scotland has trail-blazed the UK’s transition from high to low carbon in the face of economic and fiscal headwinds.
Our Energy Sector team’s unique blend of commercial, property, regulatory and procurement lawyers has enabled us to deliver major onshore and offshore wind, solar farm, biogas and hydro schemes to grid for clients. We are proud of our long history of engagement in the renewables sector and the depth of practical and legal know-how that this experience enables us to offer clients. We have delivered more than 300 renewable energy development projects for developers. Our cutting edge work with The Crown Estate on the development and commercialisation of its off-shore wind and marine energy resources off the coast of Scotland has allowed us to grow key expertise in the complex funding mechanisms introduced through Energy Market Reform.
Our skills set enables us to advise on projects throughout the UK and our track record means that an increasing number of our clients are international. Clients need to have fast and efficient advice to support investment decisions in an asset class subject to continual regulatory change at UK and EU level. We put market and regulatory change knowledge at the centre of our team’s offering to enable us to keep our clients ahead of the game. We know businesses are facing a challenging time with the current Covid-19 pandemic. For advice and guidance on this, visit our dedicated Business Hub. We can also advise on any issues arising from Brexit.
Whether you are a developer, landowner, public sector organisation, supply chain engineer, early-stage cleantech investor or company on the cusp of commercialising your renewable technology, our rapidly expanding renewable energy practice is keen to explore the opportunities with you.
