  • Project developers and landowners
  • Energy companies
  • Private and institutional investors

Development of wind power and solar cell projects

Providing legal advice on project development takes experience. It is crucial to know everything there is to know about the process and the issues that may arise between the kick-off of a project and the negotiation of agreements with landowners right up until commissioning and the start-up of production.

We have acted as legal advisers to project developers of wind power and solar cell projects, including some of the largest onshore wind farms in Denmark. We have also acted as advisers in connection with coastal wind farms and the Danish offshore wind farm project at Kriegers Flak. In connection with offshore wind farms, we have experience both with the open-door procedure and government tender procedures.

Finally, we have been involved in project development in a number of countries, assisting Danish project developers in their dealings with foreign attorneys, advisers and other project stakeholders. We have the experience, the expertise and the market insight to negotiate the best possible agreements for our clients under the given circumstances.

Our advisory services cover, for example:

  • Agreements with landowners and private rights agreements
  • Corporate structure
  • Agreements between wind farm owners
  • RE tenders
  • Loss-of-value compensation scheme
  • Financing agreements
  • Supply agreements, EPC contracts and multi-contracting
  • Insurance

Transfers of and investments in wind power and solar cell projects

In connection with Danish and international investments in and acquisitions of wind power and solar cell projects, it is crucial to identify the key investment assumptions in order to ascertain whether the risk associated with the investment and the potential return are reconciled. We see it as our most important task to identify the underlying assumptions from a legal perspective, while at the same time advising on the commercial aspects of projects based on our market knowledge.

In connection with the acquisition and divestment of wind power and solar cell projects, we have an extensive network of key players in the market who are constantly involved in the selling and buying of projects.

Our advisory services cover, for example:

  • Transfer agreements, both in connection with the acquisition and divestment of projects
  • Investment and subscription agreements
  • Due diligence
  • Financing agreements
  • Corporate matters
