The energy sector

The turnaround in energy policy gives rise to a number of legal questions. Backed by our many years of experience and involvement in the energy industry, we provide you with competent support to find effective solutions.

  • National and European laws governing the energy industry (electricity, gas, oil, renewable energies, and green electricity)
  • Energy generation and infrastructure projects, power station and plant engineering and construction
  • Energy taxes, support schemes, and energy efficiency
  • Representation in proceedings before national and international regulatory authorities (in particular tariff and abuse proceedings), the Administrative Court, the Constitutional Court, the European Commission and the ECJ, as well as proceedings before the ordinary courts, including arbitration proceedings

 

Our law firm is a member of the Energy Institute at the Johannes Kepler University Linz

We will solve the industry-relevant questions for you that regularly arise in connection with supply situations, concessions, subsidies, general terms and conditions, line rights as well as participation in the liberalized energy market.
