With some of the best wave and tidal energy resources in the world, state-of-the-art testing facilities and technical experience, the UK offers major commercial opportunities in a range of marine energy projects.
It’s become clear that the world needs cleaner, more renewable sources of energy than fossil fuels, and the UK is uniquely positioned to benefit from the transition.
With such potential in the sector, it’s crucial to call on legal expertise from a team that understands it fully and already has wide-ranging experience. We’ve already handled a range of cases for local authorities, wave and tidal energy companies, contractors, developers, funders and investment managers.
We advised on the establishment of the Wave Hub offshore wind and wave power research project off the coast of Cornwall, and provide ongoing support for wave and tidal energy developers. We can provide expert advice for all key stakeholders in the supply chain, funding, development, and acquisition and sale of wave and tidal energy assets.
From initial incorporation and the protection of your intellectual property, to funding and planning, through to leases, grid connections, procurements, power purchase agreements and supply, and construction and operation agreements, our specialist team is on hand to help you navigate sector-specific complexities and realise opportunities.
Our knowledgeable and pragmatic lawyers offer strategically minded advice at every project stage, tailoring their approach to ensure you achieve the best possible outcomes, whatever the challenges en-route.
