Another flagship of P&S Legal is the strategic energysector.

The issues related to the oil and gas market represent a branch widely followed by our Studio.

We often have relationships with relevant market regulators such as GSE (Electric Service Manager),Antitrust,AEEG (Electricity and Gas Authority), the Ministry of Energy and Gas Economic Development and MATT.

We provide legal assistance and advice in the drafting of contracts in the Energy segment both domestically and cross-border international, in particular in tolling, EPC contracts (with rules of banking and direct agrements), O&M, Management Services, Supply Contract, EFET.

In the renewable energy sector in particular, we have gained considerable experience in representing primary companies in the construction and operation of renewable energy plants (biomass , solar, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric).

We stand with the entrepreneurs in all phases of the investments: palletability of the project, obtaining administrative permissions, drafting of the contracts of supply management and maintenance of the plants, preparation and insurance contracts, leasing contracts, management of relationships with sponsors and public administrations.

We offer assistance in the M&A operations of the energy sector, through the conduct of legal due diligence and negotiation of the specialized contractual clauses of the energy regulations environmental.

The Green Economy can be defined as a type of econometric analysis that, in addition to the economic benefits, takes into account the collateral environmental damage caused by the extraction of raw materials, their transport and processing into energy, their manufacture into finished products and finally from the possible recycling or environmental damage that results in their ultimate elimination.

The energy sector is undoubtedly central to economic development, both in terms of industrialisation processes and dependence on available sources; these are energy sources limited in space and time, so talk today about sustainable economic development surpasses a first meaning becamealmost incidental, to rise to effective economic limit.

 

Sustainable growth has gone from being a long-term opportunity to the only possible short- to medium-term option.

 

In 2017 the European Commission published the COM(2017)53, Annual Report on the State of the Energy Union, the interior of which has been certified (as early as 2014!) the achievement by Italy of the 2020 target of 17 share of energy produced from renewable sources.

The International Energy Agency definesrenewable energy as any energy source that regenerates at least as fast as it uses.

Renewable energies are distinguished from traditional fossil fuels because of their inexhaustiblepotential, i.e. their lower environmental impact,as they limit CO2 emissions whose co2 emissions are reduced. reduction is the main objective set, for example, by the Kyoto Protocol.

New technologies also make it possible to obtain renewable energy at a competitive price, making producers more competitive in the international energy market.

Renewable energy is at the heart of the green economy, representing forms of energy zero impact,produced by natural resources that by their intrinsic characteristic regenerate at least the same speed however they are consumed or are not exhaustive and whose does not affect the same natural resources for future generations.

It happens frequently that the class of renewable energy sources is confused with that of alternative energy sources,which are instead the macrocategory (to which renewables belong as subclass) of any source energy other than that obtained through fossil fuels.

Among the most well-known alternative and renewable energies are:

  • Hydropower
  • Nuclear
  • Wind
  • Solar (thermal and photovoltaic)
  • Mating and Wave Wave
  • Teleheating and Geothermal
  • Bioenergy
  • Hydrogen
  • Energy Harvesting:
