Renewables

Giving mature advice on a developing energy industry

Share

With rapid electrification needs in many parts of the world combined with ambitious post-Paris Agreement carbon reduction targets, renewables are playing an increasingly important role in meeting future energy demand. 

High on the agenda for governments and energy companies across the globe, the renewables boom is seeing unprecedented levels of growth and investment in wind, solar, hydro, marine and bio-fuel assets in both emerging and developed markets.

Government support through feed-in tariffs and other incentive programs combined with high levels of innovation in technology and developments in battery storage are making these projects more economically viable.

As the market has grown internationally, we have helped clients on world-first renewables projects in almost every jurisdiction and including those entering the renewables market for the first time.

We have worked with clients on most of the market firsts in this sector and with governments and regulators to set market best practice.
