AssmannPeiffer is a boutique law firm which is specialised on the European and German energy industry. Our client portfolio reflects the whole value chain of the energy industry: We advise inter alia power utilities, grid operators, investors, project developers and energy-intensive companies. Our lawyers have many years of experience in the energy market and profound knowledge of Energy Law. Our practice covers the traditional public Energy Law (regulatory issues or concession rights pursuant to the German Energy Act (EnWG)), the specific regulations on the promotion of renewable energies (e.g. the German Renewable Energies Act (EEG), the biofuel quota, the Combined Heat and Power Act (KWKG) and the European Directive on Renewable Energies and its implementation in Germany). Further, we advise on the neighbouring fields of commercial law (draft/negotiation of energy contracts or energy litigation/arbitration). We have a special focus on energy start-ups and the legal implementation of innovative business concepts (Power-to-X, Virtual Power Plants, concepts of decentralized power supply).
