Renewable Energy

The Renewable Energy Department has specialist expertise in the rapidly growing renewable energy sector, particularly in the area of wind energy and biomass / anaerobic digestion. The importance of the sector is reflected in the Irish government’s commitment to have 40% of all electricity produced from renewable sources by 2020.

Our service is client focused and partner led in order to deliver effective and efficient legal advice to our renewable energy clients. We advise a wide range of stakeholders operating in the energy sector, from market leading semi-state entities to private developers. We provide legal advice on all aspects of energy projects, from the planning stage through to the financing, construction and operation of the project. We have particular expertise acting for developers on the sale and purchase of energy projects.
