Power Projects

Our experience in the Nigeria power industry includes advising on all aspects of the development of the electricity industry. From advising on the blue print for the privatization of the successor companies, to advising on the acquisition of privatized generation and distribution assets and on new models of regulation such as franchising and alternative financing of metering with the meter asset provider scheme, we continue to be at the cutting edge of new developments in the sector.

We help our clients forge the energy evolution by assisting in their investments in the evolving energy mix, including solar, wind, hydro, renewable fuels, biomass, waste-to-energy, energy storage, fuel cells, smart grid applications,  and other cutting-edge technologies.  We advise on the full life cycle of a renewable project, from the initial investment in renewable and sustainable energy assets to the later disposition, and finance, tax, regulatory, environmental, real estate and labor advice along the way.
