The transition to a low carbon economy requires a multidisciplinary approach. It does not only concern energy law, but requires a much broader expertise, from regulatory topics (e.g. EU ETS, health & safety requirements, and environmental regulations), to real estate and project finance expertise. The existing regulatory framework does not always meet the needs of new technologies, and changing regulations require constant vigilance from board members and legal counsel.
