Energy:
To support you through the low carbon transition

Energy systems are evolving, with increasing amounts of investment in low carbon infrastructure, creating opportunity for developers and investors alike.

However, while there is still strong support for low carbon projects, the removal of support mechanisms, such as ROCs and Feed in Tariffs in the UK, is resulting in new projects having much more of a merchant exposure than in the past.

Developers and investors must therefore get comfortable with differing risk profiles, often taking more merchant price and re-contacting risk.

There is also a strong secondary market for operational projects with some investors preferring mature technologies with a strong contracted revenue base.

This changing marketplace, combined with the emergence of new technologies and business models emphasises the importance of appropriate project structuring.

Our energy team has significant experience across wide ranging sectors such as onshore renewables (including wind and solar), bioenergy (including anaerobic digestion and biomass), heat and distributed energy.

We regularly work with both public and private sector clients across this and the wider infrastructure space, giving us a deep understanding of the challenges and themes across this rapidly evolving sector.
