Energy and Utilities

Complex regulations, a pressure to reduce emissions, and an increased demand for energy and security of supply are just some of the challenges facing the energy and utilities sector.

We provide both practical and commercial advice and understand the key issues affecting this sector, with particular experience on the authorisation of infrastructure projects, including:

  • Gas pipelines
  • LNG facilities
  • Nuclear and gas-fired electricity generating stations, biomass schemes and wind farms
  • Transmission and distribution lines
  • Underground gas storage schemes
  • Waste water projects
  • Water supply schemes

Our specialist knowledge, and practical experience, of the processes involved in preparing and submitting applications to secure authorisation for these projects goes far beyond just the law. We advise on strategy and tactics, public policy and public affairs, communications and press relations issues.

We also advise our clients on a variety of more general commercial, real estate and regulatory issues, including inquiries on price review matters before the Competition Commission.
