As the world pivots to a net zero future, our firm is at the cutting edge of developments in clean energy and emerging energy.
Our firm has been a leader in the energy and resources sector for decades, and remains at the forefront of new developments in the energy sector. We have an exceptional range of clean energy expertise covering traditional renewables wind and solar, but more significantly cutting edge energy storage (battery storage and other technologies), biomass, biogas, carbon capture and storage and hydrogen projects.
We have always had a focus on the energy industry in Australia, in particular the production, transportation and distribution of natural gas and electricity as well as energy markets generally. We have deep expertise in energy projects of all types, energy regulation and corporate transactions involving energy businesses in Australia.
In recent years, we have developed a key focus on clean energy and emerging energy technologies. In particular, recognising the likely strategic importance of hydrogen for the future of energy in Australia and elsewhere, we have been closely following the growth of hydrogen as an energy source, including policy initiatives, regulatory developments and industry initiatives, to remain at the cutting edge of this important area.
