Energy turnaround as an opportunity

Make the transition together with our Energy Law Team and our other specialists at PwC Legal

The energy sector is undergoing an unprecedented transition that’s bringing tremendous challenges, but also a wide range of business opportunities. Clean renewables are gradually replacing fossil fuels. Rotating wind turbines generate power onshore and offshore.

Sunlight is converted into electricity by increasingly efficient photovoltaic (PV) cells. Biofuels can already be produced from sources that used to be incinerated.

Energy in business development

Renewable energies are imperative in any sustainable business model. The operation of conventional power plants is no longer economical – new energy grid structures are required for the upcoming architecture of power generation. Many power utilities are therefore looking for new fields of business.

This development goes hand in hand with digitisation, which will have a major impact on the energy industry in the next few years and is fuelled by the important challenge facing humankind to protect our planet and its inhabitants from climate change.

Due to our integrated and global approach, we can advise and represent you in other areas of law such as corporate, regulatory, tax and mergers and acquisitions.
