EFW, Biomass & AD

Having advised on over 100 major projects, we have specialist knowledge of all aspects of Energy from Waste, AD and biomass schemes, from due diligence to negotiating and preparing land agreements, investment & funding arrangements, heat and fuel supply contracts and construction contracts, including O&M contracts. 

We also provide advice in relation to project finance, digestate disposal, planning and environment regulation, grid connection and gas sale arrangements.

We act for all parties involved in successful projects including developers, banks, investors, contractors and suppliers.

Highlights

  • Advising a renewable energy developer on 30+ matters across a range of technologies including multi-tech and Energy from Waste (EFW) projects. Most recently we advised in relation to their multi-site EFW acquisition.
  • Advising an investment manager on the project documentation, DD and finance for significant EFW schemes in the South West. We also advised on the construction funding and DD aspects for a number of other AD, solar PV and gas peaking projects.
  • Supporting the owner of a biomass CHP project, and its funder, on issues arising from the initial rejection by Ofgem of the project's application for Renewable Heat Incentive accreditation. After a complex review process the result was a reversal of Ofgem's original decision and the successful grant of accreditation for the project.
  • Advising an electricity producer in respect of the introduction of £multi-million equity from various funds to construct a 3MW AD plant in Northern Ireland.
