Energy Trading

A unified field of competence between the energy and financial sector

As an experienced partner with a comprehensive understanding of finance law, we advise on establishing and expanding energy trading activities for energy supply and delivery companies, brokers and financial institutions.

Our experience covers:

  • supply agreements for energy sources
  • grid access and connection issues
  • permit issues (e.g. German Energy Industry Act (EnWG), German Electricity Tax Act (StromStG), German Banking Act (KWG))
  • master agreements (physical and financial supply)
  • sector-specific trading contracts (EFET, ISDA, German Master Agreement for Financial Derivatives Transactions, ZBT 2001, NBP 1997, CPMAs, CSAs, etc.)

In addition, we advise on exotic derivative products with energy, emissions and the weather as underlyings.

In the field of emissions trading, we provide comprehensive advice on the project-based Kyoto mechanisms CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) and JI (Joint Implementation). We help you validate emission-reduction measures to obtain emission credits.
