The decarbonisation of economies has far reaching implications for energy systems the world over. At Brodies we are responding to this challenge with our dedicated renewables team staffed with legal experts from across the firm, advising generators, investors, lenders and landowners across the UK on all aspects of projects and transactions in the low carbon sector.

Brodies renewables team advises on the entire lifecycle of a project from obtaining the project rights, to financing and construction, operations and decommissioning, as well as the sale, purchase or refinancing of development rights and operating assets. The breadth of our expertise means we are one of a handful of firms who can provide all the advice needed to deliver project in Scotland, in particular in remote regions, where specialist crofting or land law expertise is needed.

We advise on projects in the power, heat and transport sectors. In the power sector, we have experience in the wind, hydro, waste to energy, biomass, AD, PV and tidal sectors. In the heat sector, we have experience in gas and biomass CHP, distributed heat networks and green gas projects injecting into the national gas grid. In transport, we have experience in green hydrogen fuel projects.

The core objectives of our service delivery are to help create value for our clients, by using our experience to offer insights and strategic advice, as well as delivering our core legal services to the highest standard. As well as advising widely across the sector each year, we can count many market firsts and landmark projects among our achievements.
