Energy law services

The dynamic development of the energy sector continues to be in focus today. Improving the productivity of energy production, the efficient use of energy sources and switching to renewables, new technologies, renewable energy production emerging and becoming more accessible to the general population, the spreading of e-mobility and smart energy, and the need for addressing environmental issues and mitigating harmful consequences pose challenges on an ongoing basis for both legislators and the entities operating in the sector.
