Field of transmission towers

When it comes to implementing grid connections, we regularly deal with the related grid connection and grid usage agreements as well as the corresponding framework agreements.

We are experts in drafting agreements for grid takeovers as well as representation in antitrust matters.
In regulatory issues, our experience includes large European projects and most of our work is cross-border work involving multiple offices. Clients often praise our handling of such complex projects. In the field of storage technologies, we are particularly experienced in the construction of gas caverns.

Energy storage systems can help ensure security of supply and balance fluctuating energy supply and changing demand. There are several technologies available for interim storage (e.g. pumped storage and compressed air reservoirs as well as hydrogen). We follow developments closely and are familiar with the evolving legal framework. In addition to our experience of gas caverns, we deal extensively with pumped storage power plants.
