Renewable Energy

Large-scale development of renewable energy production is an essential part of the global energy transition. The Norwegian government has set a target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, which places great demands on both politicians and commercial players.

Our renewables team advises across all green and renewable technologies, including offshore and onshore wind, hydropower, solar power and district heating. We assist developers, investors, suppliers and public enterprises across the entire spectrum of transactions and legal matters relevant to the sector.

The team provides advice in close cooperation with internal sector specialists on tax, construction, financing, EU, EEA and competition law, litigation, real estate and M&A. Selmer is also one of the few law firms in Norway to offer an incumbent team of financial professionals and auditors with specialist expertise in the energy sector, who can assist on matters such as valuations and financial due diligence.
