Energy & Infrastructure
More and more integrated Energy & Infrastructure projects, related litigation and policy changes will require increasingly detailed and cross-sectional advice. You can count on us to navigate you through these developments with tailored high-quality advice.
Climate, technological, economic and geopolitical developments are driving new regulatory interventions, requiring businesses to adapt, and triggering questions about implementation, interpretation and validity of new laws. Whether you are a developer, utility, corporate, fund or bank, grid operator or public authority, you can rely on our long-standing experience in Energy & Infrastructure to provide you a full-service advice and support.
Energy storage & grid congestion
One of the major challenges for the energy transition is the available capacity of the electricity grids. Decentralised renewable production, large scale electrification (EV, housing and industry) and power demand by data centres, demand grid capacity for which the existing grid was never designed or laid out. This leads to grid congestion in large parts of the system. And as the expanding of a grid component may easily take seven years or more, market parties are looking for alternatives to still be able to realise their projects. We advise our clients on alternative connection solutions, such as cable pooling, private networks, direct lines, on-site consumption and (electrical or chemical) storage, as the case may require, always keeping an eye on the ‘bankability’ of the project. We take care of the necessary contracting and regulatory consents and permits and advise on legal and tax structuring of the project.
