Wolf Theiss contributes to the Clean Energy Tool

Wolf Theiss teamed up with fellow international law firm Simmons & Simmons to provide the Austrian section to their Clean Energy Tool.

The online tool is a comprehensive, multi-jurisdictional resource for investors and developers in the clean energy sector. A wealth of legal and regulatory information is presented in a standardised format covering key areas including land acquisition, environmental approvals, revenue streams, grid connection, disputes, tax, structuring and finance. The Clean Energy Tool also includes a unique cross-jurisdictional comparison function and already covers almost 70 jurisdictions globally.

There is a rising demand for renewable energy on a global scale as countries strive to reduce their carbon footprint and meet climate goals. Likewise, there is also an increasing demand for clean energy infrastructure to support the growth of renewable energy sources. With the legal and regulatory environment evolving as quickly as the clean energy sector itself, the tool is an invaluable resource for clients requiring comprehensive up-to-date information. 

The team of Wolf Theiss contributors was led by the Head of Regulatory, Planning and Environment, Kurt Retter, with assistance from senior associates Dominik Engel and Georg Knafl. They were further supported by lawyers from our various practice groups, including Venus Valentina Wong (Disputes), Stefan Wartinger (Competition & Antitrust), Karin Spindler-Simader (Tax) and Markus Aigner (Banking & Finance).

As one of the leading law firms for energy projects in the CEE/SEE region, Wolf Theiss is ideally suited to provide you with market leading legal and/or tax advice for your renewable energy projects.
