Having profound and excellent knowledge of the power industry sector and of the different relevant legal fields we are able to provide competent advice. MELCHERS has long experience in counseling different actors of this sector (power suppliers, network operators, infrastructure investors, electricity-intensive companies and the public authorities) and form for each project competent teams of experts of the different legal fields (energy management legislation, environmental law, construction and planning law, benefit law, antitrust law, company law, contract law, real estate law and tax law).
We support our clients in projects of the private sector – e.g. construction and operation of an industrial heating and power station, district heating in the housing sector or construction, operation and sale of solar or wind parks – as well as in municipal projects as for example the implementation of energy contracting models for energy supply of municipal properties including the draft of different participation models. We further provide guidance through all stages of projects with nationwide and international importance – as for example the construction of pipeline routes for off-shore wind parks. The company law consultancy of MELCHERS in the energy sector is completed by the advice, support and representation in regulatory proceedings and before (arbitration) courts.
