Energy Law

We advise on all issues of German and European energy law. This includes the areas of energy contract and distribution law as well as energy competition law, energy regulation law and the law of renewable energies. As energy law is also increasingly becoming climate protection law, we also support companies with challenges arising from the decarbonisation of the energy market, for example in connection with the coal phase-out.

We represent companies on both the procurement and sales sides in drafting their energy supply contracts and energy supply companies in all energy distribution law issues. This includes the law on general terms and conditions as well as the requirements of antitrust law for electricity and gas sales at the wholesale level and in sales to end customers.

In addition, energy regulation law is a focal point of our advisory practice. For many years, we have been advising network operators on issues of unbundling, network access and tariff regulation.

In the increasingly complex law of renewable energies, we advise power plant operators and companies with high electricity demand, for example, in the context of tenders for subsidies, on questions of priority grid connection and on the limitation of the EEG levy. We also work for direct marketers and other market players. Beyond the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), the increasingly dense network of European energy and environmental law results in higher requirements for energy production and the marketing of energetic materials. The requirements arising from the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II) are a case in point.

Finally, we are the point of contact for special energy law issues ranging from redispatch and requirements under the REMIT Regulation to the marketing of guarantees of origin and CO2 certificates.
