We are Stibbe Renewables and Cleantech specialists

Cooperation is key to our approach to renewables and clean tech, integrating our expertise from related practice areas to create the most effective solutions.

Renewables and Cleantech

In our experience, renewable energy projects regularly involve both environmental and energy law aspects. This is why we ensure a very close integration between our environment and planning practice and our energy practice.

This seamless collaboration offers our energy-related clients tailor-made, full legal assistance on matters concerning permits, contracts, financing, subsidies and project supervision.

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.
