The energy transition and the target in the climate agreement to reduce CO2 emissions by 49% by 2030 present the Netherlands with an enormous challenge: how will we divide and redevelop the living environment? We are also seeing a trend of climate change adaptation becoming more important. What measures, for example, can we take as a result of global warming. All this has a major impact on the Energy sector. 

The specialists of our Energy sector team are able to advise and assist in every link of renewable energy projects, such as constructing a wind farm, solar park or CO2 storage, or biogas plants and switching to gas-free housing. We can advise you on the most suitable legal forms, financing options, integration in the area, and also on granting or obtaining the required subsidies, permits and permissions.
