Energy Law

En­ergy law is­sues af­fect not only uti­lity com­pa­nies, but also real es­tate ow­ners, in­dus­trial com­pa­nies and mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties. The ent­ire va­lue chain, from the ge­ne­ra­tion of elec­tri­city and heat, the trans­por­ta­tion and sto­rage of gas, elec­tri­city and heat, and the dis­tri­bu­tion of en­ergy, to the use of en­ergy by con­su­mers, is sub­ject to laws and re­gu­la­ti­ons that are be­com­ing more com­pre­hen­sive and more com­pli­ca­ted every year.

The con­tents of these laws and re­gu­la­ti­ons are lar­gely de­ter­mi­ned by spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons from EU di­rec­tives. We are tho­roughly fa­mi­liar with all these ru­les and can as­sist you in achie­ving your busi­ness goals on the en­ergy mar­ket, re­gard­less of your role in that mar­ket.

It has long been a tru­ism that the en­ergy re­vo­lu­tion will mean that tra­di­tio­nal busi­ness mo­dels must be re­viewed and ad­ap­ted to meet the new re­qui­re­ments of the mar­ket. Ge­ne­ra­tion struc­tures are be­com­ing more de­cen­tra­li­zed, while many cu­st­omers have be­gun to see them­sel­ves not as con­su­mers of en­ergy, but as "pro­sumers." These de­ve­lop­ments make heavy de­mands - not only on small and mid-si­zed uti­lity com­pa­nies, but also on the "pro­sumers" them­sel­ves, who are now sub­ject to le­gal re­qui­re­ments that they are of­ten unable to meet wi­thout ex­pert ad­vice.

With our many years of ex­pe­ri­ence as le­gal ad­vi­sors and li­ti­ga­tors, we can help you with these re­qui­re­ments. We have the an­swers to your ques­ti­ons about en­ergy law and will en­sure that you are not bo­the­red with other pro­blems so that you can put your ideas into prac­tice.
