Wouter’s approach to law is intrinsically linked to his area of specialism: energy. In this way he assists his clients in contractual and regulatory matters in energy law.
Wouter applies his knowledge and expertise to a broad spectrum of energy subjects. These include regulatory issues of grid operation, exemptions for major new energy infrastructure, renewable energy projects, heat projects construction and grid connection of power plants. Furthermore, he advises on electricity and gas market transparency issues, CO2 emission trading, Kyoto flexible mechanisms and Emission Reduction Purchase Agreements (ERPAs).
Wouter is a voluntary affiliated researcher at the Centrum voor Milieu-en Energierecht of the University of Ghent. He is a member of the editorial board of the law journal MER (Tijdschrift voor Milieu- en Energierecht) and of the board of directors of Smart Grids Flanders.
