The energy sector in Greece has been undergoing a profound restructuring over the past decade, with renewable energy gaining the spotlight in domestic legal practice. Natural gas, wind power, solar power, hydroelectric power, geothermal power and hybrid power are some of the rapidly evolving energy fields that attract investors’ interest, thereby gaining regulatory and legal attention. Notwithstanding the above, conventional energy production—mainly involving lignite mines—continues to account for the larger part of the domestic energy plan.
Covering all aspects of the energy spectrum, we provide sophisticated advice, as well as administrative (i.e., before the Regulatory Authority for Energy) and judicial representation, on a wide range of issues covering licensing, energy production and distribution, competition among the relevant market actors, negotiations with energy producers and power plant operations. In recent years, we have handled a great variety of complicated legal issues for leading energy producer and provider in Greece.
