Today’s growing renewable energy and clean technology industry is alive with possibility as well as challenges, not only in the relatively mature markets of North America and Europe but particularly in the emerging renewables markets of Asia, Latin America and Africa.
Baker & McKenzie's legal advisers have unmatched experience across all renewable energy and clean technology types, including wind, solar, geothermal, landfill gas, biofuels, biomass, waste to energy and ocean energy. We act for developers, lenders, investors, technology providers and other industry players on significant and high-profile renewable energy transactions across the globe.
Leading the way in emerging international law, policy and practices, our global team acts on market-defining transactions and reforms in all key renewables markets in North and South America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Our commitment to assisting clients wherever they operate is reflected in the recent openings of new Baker & McKenzie offices in Morocco, South Africa and Turkey.
The depth of our experience and the strength of our geographic network means we can assist you in negotiating and structuring all phases of renewable energy project development. We advise on corporate and tax structuring, operations and maintenance (O&M), engineering, procurement and construction (EPC), and power purchase agreement (PPA) contracting. We can also assist in project funding — including all aspects of project debt and equity financings and joint ventures — and counsel on property and transmission rights, electricity market regulatory matters, renewable energy credits, carbon credits and associated green rights, as well as planning and environmental compliance issues.
