The energy industry has undergone major changes in recent years. More new entities in wind and solar energy are establishing themselves and competition is increasing in several energy areas. For a long time, Lindahl has provided advice to companies in the energy industry, including some of the leading power producers, electricity trading companies and suppliers of power and power transmission equipment in Sweden.
Lindahl assists clients in the establishment, acquisition, restructuring, construction and operation of production facilities and power transmission lines, as well as financing projects in the energy industry. We also offer specialist expertise in the preparation of various types of commercial agreements that affect the industry, such as cooperation, delivery and distribution contracts. Our lawyers have lengthy and solid experience of standard agreements in the industry, such as ABA 99, Orgalime, FIDIC, NEC, LOGIC, and more. We also have extensive experience in regulatory issues and litigation under, among other things, the Electricity Act and the Natural Gas Act regarding, for example, network concessions, tariff compensation/revenue frameworks and connection targets.
"Lindahl, for example, has leading expertise in environmental issues related to wind power"
Advisory services in the energy industry require broad experience and expertise in areas such as contract law, environmental law, real estate law, civil engineering law and financing. Lindahl has, for example, leading expertise in environmental issues related to wind and solar energy, has advised on the financing of the largest wind farms and solar power plants and provides civil engineering advice for both wind farms and the country's largest start-up cogeneration project, biofuel plants, large power transmission projects with submarine cable laying and various nuclear modernisations.
Our experience includes establishments, including advice on the concessions and permits required to operate in Sweden. In recent years, we have increasingly provided advice on competition law issues to entities in the industry. We have extensive experience of the environmental law issues that arise in connection with licensing authorisation and have handled several of Sweden's largest energy transactions (M&A).
