CleanTech and renewable energy sector

We’re committed to working with clients in tackling climate change. We’ve closed some of the most important CleanTech and renewable energy projects in the market during recent years. Our highly experienced CleanTech and renewable energy lawyers provide a full and seamless range of practical and innovative solutions to our clients on CleanTech and renewable energy projects, both domestically and internationally.   

At Browne Jacobson, our renewable energy lawyers are known for being experienced, trusted advisors across a wide range of clean technologies including hydrogen, wind, solar, battery, EV charging infrastructure, waste, biomass, nuclear and tidal.

We cover the full CleanTech and renewable energy asset life cycle, from the origins of the underlying technological concept, through the regulatory, procurement, planning and authorisation phase to the raising of equity and debt capital, development and operation, the everyday operational aspects (including negotiating the ongoing commercial contracts, advising on agreements with governments, licence/distribution agreements and securing/protecting the related IP) and the sale/acquisition of assets/businesses, including the provision of sector-focussed advice on asset level legal due diligence.

Our CleanTech and renewable energy law advice also includes drafting and negotiating commercial energy contracts. We act for sponsors, equity investors, debt financiers, E&I major corporates, public sector clients, tech SMEs, university spinouts, contractors, construction companies, developers, landowners and energy purchasers, and are familiar with the concerns and objectives of all the participants in these transactions.

Most importantly, we’re committed to driving forward the important issue of environmental sustainability and climate change. We recognise that tackling climate change and achieving net zero is of fundamental importance, with this commitment underpinning every client relationship. We work closely with you, engaging in debate and policy making, and using our strong contact base to facilitate connections and collaboration.
