We advise funders, developers and landowners in connection with all aspects of wind generation projects.

Our lawyers have deep knowledge of the issues affecting the wind sector from yield analysis and site assembly, grid connection and consenting through to turbine supply, balance of plant issues and PPA and CfD arrangements.
