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.
