Renewables and Clean Technology

With the reduction of carbon emissions and the assurance of energy security so high on the agenda for governments and energy companies, renewable energy (on and off shore wind, solar, hydro and marine power) is as an essential part of the solution for slowing the pace of climate change and improving energy security.

With the reduction of carbon emissions and the assurance of energy security so high on the agenda for governments and energy companies, renewable energy (on and off shore wind, solar, hydro and marine power) is as an essential part of the solution for slowing the pace of climate change and improving energy security. 

With ambitious carbon reduction targets being set globally and regionally, many governments incentivise the development of renewables through support programmes, such as feed-in tariffs, which are having a positive impact on the pace of development of renewables. All these factors make this an exciting industry to work in, and one that requires its advisers to have sector–specific knowledge backed up by a global resource capability.


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 refinancing or sale. We are at the forefront of the renewable energy 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.
