Energy Networks

A number of factors are driving increasing interest in energy networks (electricity & gas transmission and distribution):

forecast growth in the demand for energy globally; the need to support new low-carbon generation capacity; the need to replace dated infrastructure to improve demand management (smartgrids & smartmeters); regulatory pressure in some jurisdictions to separate transmission, generation, supply and distribution businesses and increasing investor appetite for a stable regulated income stream.

Allen & Overy provides pioneering advice on the entire lifecycle of these assets, from the consenting and planning process, through to the construction, financing, operation, maintenance and ultimately their sale or refinancing. We are at the forefront of the energy networks market, advising debt funders (including banks, bond arrangers, ECAs, DFIs and multilaterals), sellers and acquirers (on M&A transactions), sponsors, corporates (including large vertically integrated utilities), suppliers, manufacturers and governments on market leading projects and transactions globally. These transactions are supported by our specialists in areas such as environmental law, regulatory, tax and planning.
