In this article we examine the German legal framework for “subsidy-free solar” and highlight the most important points to take into consideration regarding the development, financing and investment in such projects.
We are experts in all types of public law matters, with special focus on the energy, transport and real estate sectors.
We advise on a wide variety of public law issues across our core sectors and a range of other sectors, including contentious administrative and public law procedures, public contracts, environmental and nature protection, State aid and subsidies, public-private partnerships, concessions and permit and planning procedures.
Our public law team represents clients before EU Courts, national authorities, and at regional and local levels, in all instances. Examples of our work include representation to both contracting authorities and private parties before the Administrative Courts, with specific regard to the procedures governing the award of public contracts, development of models for the financing, construction and operation of infrastructure, equipment and services and support in drafting legal and regulatory provisions at state, regional and local levels.
Through our expertise across the full range of regulatory, competition and public law, which often overlap, we provide holistic advice with a view to mitigating risk and delivering on commercial objectives.
