We have significant experience in renewable energy, including wind, hydro, geothermal, biomass, solar, co-generation and tidal developments. We have helped local, national and international firms in all aspects of renewable energy projects. We have provided significant assistance to various renewable energy project (independent power producer) developers who have responded to utility run Request for Proposals regarding renewable energy. We regularly provide advice on:
- land rights;
- environmental assessment and permitting;
- project financing;
- corporate structuring and tax matters;
- energy regulatory compliance; and
- commercial arrangements including the drafting and negotiation of power purchase agreements, turbine supply agreements, engineering, procurement and construction contracts, balance of plant contracts, labour and employment matters, and interconnection and operating arrangements with utilities.
In addition, we have assisted local and international firms in site selection and land use restrictions, environmental assessment, ground lease terms, non-resident and other tax issues, and migratory birds legislation.
