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).

Sustainability-linked loans and green finance developments in Poland

Greater interest in ESG and the energy transition may be observed recently throughout Europe, especially after the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian aggression against Ukraine. The green energy transition has become not only a matter of climate protection but also of domestic security. As banks are one of the most important sources of external financing, they play a significant role in the transformation to a sustainable economy and can contribute towards mitigating adverse effects on the environment and society by key players in the global economy.
