Overview

Our energy team offer expert advice to clients engaged in a wide variety of activities, from oil exploration on the Norwegian continental shelf, to traditional wind and hydropower projects, to development of cutting-edge renewable energy solutions. We also have extensive experience in cleantech transactions, particularly those involving battery, hydrogen and solar technology.

We act for market leaders on hydro, wind, district heating, grid and solar projects in Norway, sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. We provide advice on transactions, financing, and the regulatory frameworks for power production, environmental protection, grid management, PPAs and international and domestic transmission. The energy team's near continuous involvement in Norwegian wind and hydro power transactions has allowed us to develop a particularly deep knowledge of our domestic market.
