There has been a seismic shift in the energy sector in the last few years with global attention being directed at reducing our use of fossil fuels and making the switch towards a net-zero economy. In order to bring down our reliance on carbon, there is now a sustained interest in both the public and private sectors for developing and expanding sources of renewable energy to provide a secure supply of clean energy.
Understandably, this emerging sector is becoming increasingly competitive as the market develops, with individuals, companies, utilities and private investors and funds seeking innovative advice and solutions from their lawyers. This is becoming ever more relevant as regulatory frameworks evolve and global economics and politics becomes more interlinked.
The technological innovation which is transforming the energy sector means that an understanding of the business environment is essential to providing first-class legal support. As a top tier law firm in this sector, we have been involved some of the most complex and significant transactions to date in the UK including the largest solar project in Scotland, the world’s first commercial scale tidal project, Scotland’s first commercial hydrogen project, the largest wind project in Scotland developed by a co-op and the first gas-to-grid AD projects in Scotland. With our cross-sectoral knowledge and expertise, we ensure that our clients are equipped with the best commercial advice.
