Energy & Resource Management

The lawyers in our Energy & Resource Management team support funders, investors, operators and service providers in project development, regulatory and operational issues

We help businesses with all aspects of their energy and waste matters. Our Team includes specialists from across the firm, including construction and infrastructure, real estate, corporate, employment, planning, environmental and health & safety.

Our commitment to the sector translates into real, up-to-date knowledge about the challenges you face which go to the heart of your business, including bankability, issues with eligibility for tariffs (ROCs, NIROCs, RHI and FiTs), shifting regulation and public perception. You get advisers that understand the commercial environment in which your business operates.


Energy from waste

We advise on projects and the implementation of strategies to divert waste from landfill and reclaim the energy and other resources held within the waste. These projects can include the design, finance, construction and operation of local authority and merchant facilities, through to advising on the supply and offtake of resources from waste generators and aggregators.


Energy Innovation

We support businesses at the forefront of energy innovation. Whether you’re inventing new ways of harnessing energy or finding cleaner ways of using existing energy sources, we help push the boundaries in delivering advanced energy solutions.


Project Finance

We have vast experience of advising on PPP, PFI and quasi-project financed projects for a varied client base including procuring authorities, sponsors, investors and lenders. We have an established track record of advising on a wide range of financing structures in the waste, renewable energy and a number of other sectors.
