The Dutch energy sector’s attention is divided over two playing fields. International trade, with many world-class players, is the first. The second is the European playing field, with specific national and local rules, local players and a market in which decentralised government bodies are also active. Our specialists in the energy sector are closely involved in major national issues in the field of energy transition, market regulation and energy trading.
The energy sector is facing a major challenge in energy transition. Disconnecting from natural gas means choosing a new source of energy. Will electrification work, or should a solution be sought in residual heat, CHP and aquathermal heat? Is there also a role in energy storage for hydrogen? Pels Rijcken is in its element in the energy sector. Our team of specialists advise energy companies, developers, buyers and governments. Strong in advice, decisive in litigation.
Our specific approach appeals to both governments and the business community. Not only thanks to the in-depth, substantive expertise of our attorneys, but also because we know our way through every link in the energy chain. Pels Rijcken combines market knowledge with a healthy no-nonsense approach.
