Energy, Ireland

Eversheds Sutherland is a market leader in the expanding renewable energy sector. We advise all leading Irish banks together with a number of foreign banks and other financiers in relation to Energy Projects. We also act for a large number of developers on commercial, contractual and regulatory issues.

We are specialists in negotiating turbine supply contracts, operation and maintenance contracts, power purchase agreements and other ancillary documents. We also have extensive regulatory expertise. We have advised on more wind farm projects than any  other law firm in Ireland, having been involved in more than 40 such projects. These range from some of the largest to some of the smallest and we are happy to advise one-off developers as well as the largest multi-nationals. Our team has also had an involvement in all Irish offshore wind farm projects to date.

To supplement our market-leading wind energy experience, the team has been involved in the development of a number of leading independent power producers (IPPs), including the Tynagh and Huntstown power stations. We also advise on the development of a number of waste-to-energy and combined heat and power projects.
