The demand for energy is set to rise even further during the coming years. At the same time, all kinds of questions arise on how to manage the transition from fossil energy to sustainable energy. Laws and regulations need to be harmonized with agreements made on these issues at a global level.
Our team of lawyers has wide-ranging specialist knowledge of and experience in the energy sector to help answer these questions from a legal point of view. Our expertise extends across the entire spectrum of energy law, from exploration, production and transmission to the distribution and supply of energy.
We assist not only parties in the private sector such as developers, contractors, the chemical industry and other industries, but also government bodies, municipalities and utility companies.
One aspect of our work is advising parties on projects for generating energy from sustainable sources, such as the sun, wind and biomass. These projects need space, and it is here that spatial planning law and environmental law play a crucial role.
We are also involved in projects developing new energy infrastructure, both above ground (cables, pipelines, plants) and underground (cables, pipelines, storage of gas and CO2) and advise our clients on licensing procedures for large industrial plants. Sustainability plays an important role in all these areas. Our team also has particular expertise in the licensing procedure for gas extraction.
