We have been involved in most of the renewable energy projects in Pakistan. We are well placed to advise developers and investors, as well as sponsors investing directly in the sector. While conventional energy sources will continue to be a large part of Pakistan’s energy mix, the share of clean, renewable energy is growing quickly and will certainly continue to aggressively grow.
Participants in Pakistan’s burgeoning renewable power and renewable fuels industry benefit from our timely and expert advice on a wide range of issues important to this sector. We have acted for clients in a variety of renewable power sectors, including, among others, hydro, wind, solar, biogas, biomass, biowaste, biofuels, and geothermal.
Navigating the corporate/commercial, regulatory and taxation landscape can be a daunting task for renewable power developers in Pakistan. Our lawyers have been key advisors at every step of the way, specifically retained with respect to acquiring project finance, accessing government incentives/programs, clearing regulatory hurdles, acquiring permits, completing environmental assessments, zoning real estate, acquiring and leasing land and property, devising tax-efficient structures (including renewable power incentives like flow-through financing structures), drafting and reviewing project documents, negotiating project agreement such as EPC contracts, operation and maintenance agreements and supply and off-take agreements, and assisting with all aspects of mergers, acquisitions and divestitures.
Our lawyers have acted for and have strong connections with the federal and provincial regulatory authorities and power distribution and transmission entities, and we possess a comprehensive knowledge of power authorities’ renewable power tariff and procurement processes.
