We provide pragmatic solutions for generation projects on behalf of sponsors, project companies, lenders and contractors. These include offshore, onshore and near-shore wind parks, cogeneration projects, biomass plants, carbon capture and storage (CCS) projects, solar energy, hydro energy and electricity storage.

The breadth of our expertise also encompasses matters regarding air quality, environmental quality standards, national emissions ceilings, the use of best available techniques (BAT), green infrastructure and emission trading.
