Every day Pels Rijcken’s Energy team works on the largest and most complex energy projects in the Netherlands. Such projects usually have significant public impact due to their financial, social or political relevance. We are consistently retained by our clients to advise on the latest energy (law) related developments. We are not only involved in practically all major wind farm projects onshore and offshore, but also in major – renewable – heat, as well as heat and cold storage and supply projects. We are also regularly retained for climate change matters, such as CO2 emission rights trading. We are leading in regulatory litigation in the energy sector. In addition to our successful regulatory practice, we also have a considerable transactional track record.



National and international corporates, as well as governmental and regulatory bodies hire Pels Rijcken where matters of prime importance are at stake. We are advising energy producers, suppliers and traders and energy project developers. Unlike other law firms, we are retained by the Dutch government to advise on strategic and politically sensitive energy matters.
