Schoenherr's experts provide legal advice in all energy-related matters, nationally and internationally.

Schoenherr's energy practice has long been widely recognised as a market leader. Our clients include energy project developers, public suppliers, trading companies, powerplant operators, E&P companies, investors in infrastructure, grid operators, international institutions (DG ENER, Energy Community Secretariat), IFIs, regulatory authorities, national governments and energy-intensive industrial companies. Our energy team advises on conventional power, renewable energy (RES), district heat & cooling (DHC), nuclear and oil & gas (up-/mid-/downstream).

Providing legal advice to the energy sector requires an interdisciplinary approach, one that comprises not just energy law in the narrow sense but also environmental, planning and construction law, state aid and competition/antitrust law, public procurement, arbitration and litigation, and, in connection with transactions, corporate law.

We have an excellent reputation of successfully advising on all aspects of major cross-border acquisitions, joint ventures, asset exchanges, privatisations, trading and marketing, project finance, regulation and market reform. Schoenherr's energy practice also deals with climate protection & sustainability matters and has established a multi-disciplinary energy transition team which comprises lawyers from all practice areas with a detailed understanding of the energy sector and energy transition requirements.

Our energy transition team is a market leader in providing legal services and creative solutions for photovoltaic and wind power plants. In relation to renewable energy auctions, we provide legal advice and procedural support to bidders (investors) and contracting authorities (including auction design). Schoenherr further specialises in new energy technologies and innovative energy solutions (e.g. Power2X, green gas quotation regulations, green gas certificates, RED II energy communities, Green Financing, support mechanism for biomethane and hydrogen).

Austria: Schoenherr advises Hypo Vorarlberg on EUR 330m synthetic securitisation to boost energy-efficient buildings

Schoenherr advised Hypo Vorarlberg on the synthetic securitisation of a EUR 330m portfolio of loans to small and medium-sized enterprises, corporate borrowers or certain private individuals. The transaction is designed to achieve regulatory capital relief under CRR (II) / CRD IV (V). The transaction builds upon a similar securitisation completed with Schoenherr's support at the end of 2017. It is a part of the European Investment Bank's response to support the Austrian economy following the COVID-19 pandemic.
