Cleantech & Renewable Energy

Technological innovation is driving rapid changes in the renewable energy and Cleantech sectors.

Energy generation costs are falling and energy efficiency is rising, leading to renewable energy becoming an ever more important part of the generation mix. Cleantech developments are also leading to transformation and disruption in a host of sectors, from transport to construction.

However, as the sector moves away from government-backed to privately financed projects commercial risks remain for operators, investors and other stakeholders.

The regulatory environment for renewable energy is also changeable and successfully completing projects requires an understanding of the legal, financial and regulatory key issues that may impact your plans.
