The energy industry is currently primarily affected by topics in the generation area; this applies both to conventional and to renewable energy sources.

Highlights are the early withdrawal of nuclear power, offshore wind parks, the substantial increase in photovoltaic power plants as well as questions regarding the profitability and realization of coal- and gas power plant projects. Additional topics are cooperation and mergers of public utility companies.

In the near future, a multitude of licenses are set to expire. Municipalities are considering the implementation of new cooperation models or the "re-municipalization" of power supply. Issues of energy efficiency, smart metering and electromobility also shape the market. Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek provides counsel to its clients in the lawful implementation of these innovations. Moreover, during the contract drafting and negotiation of energy supply and purchase contracts, the establishment and implementation of contracting projects, we advise on questions of the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) and the Act on Combined Heat and Power Generation (KWKG) as well as on judicial and extra-judicial disputes with contracting parties.

In addition, one focus of our activity is legal counsel to companies in the energy industry regarding the acquisition or sale of stock as well as the drafting and negotiation of contracts. We also provide counsel on PPP projects and complex award procedures.

Our clients in the energy sector include energy providers, energy trading companies, industrial and large customers, plant operators and public authorities. Along with expertise and knowledge of the industry sectors, our counsel is characterized by our ability to understand economic relationships, our many years of experience, our flexibility to adapt to each individual circumstance and our personal dedication to your needs.
