Energy & sustainability

Our team has substantial experience in advising a variety of private sector clients on renewable energy project development and delivery in Australia.

Australia’s electricity market is currently experiencing a period of profound and unprecedented change. By regularly participating in forums conducted by key government entities and major industry players, we are well-positioned to advise clients on complex and evolving matters like embedded networks and electricity on-selling.

We have also assisted a number of solar PV developers in integrating renewable energy power solutions throughout Australia.

Credentials

Analysis of energy supply agreements: As part of our electricity market regulatory expertise, we have assisted a major A-REIT by reviewing a variety of energy (electricity and gas) supply agreements.

On-selling of electricity: We have advised a major corporate entity on its capacity to on-sell electricity to all of its commercial sites across Australia. With the cost of retail electricity projected to continue increasing into the future, this initiative has the potential to save a significant amount of money across the client’s entire commercial portfolio.

Alternative energy supply: In the renewable energy sector, we act for both principals and alternative energy suppliers (mainly solar) in relation to project development, supply and installation activities and regulatory advice concerning the generation and sale of alternative energy throughout Australia.
