The energy transition is the global shift from fossil fuels to renewables and low-carbon energy sources to reduce energy-related carbon emissions and limit climate change.
The energy transition requires a massive and increased rate of investment in renewable energy, increased electrification of industry, transportation, and heating, as well as the development of electrofuels like green hydrogen where electricity is not a good substitute for hydrocarbons, and carbon capture and storage at scale to capture emissions that cannot be prevented.
We advise clients on the full breadth of energy transition-related opportunities from a project financing and development, regulatory, M&A, joint venture and construction standpoint. We are also well-positioned to advise and represent multinational clients in cross-border litigation, international arbitration, investigations and risk mitigation.
Our lawyers have been involved in many first-of-a-kind and award-winning matters across onshore and offshore wind, floating offshore wind, solar, carbon capture, clean hydrogen, battery storage, EV charging, grids, interconnection, carbon trading, infratech and new nuclear.
