BCTG Avocats has been a recognised expert in renewable energy for over twenty-five years. We work alongside the players in this market in all sectors (onshore and offshore wind power, solar, biomass, hydroelectricity, hydrogen, storage, …) and have a unique and integrated expertise in public and private law in the development of projects in France and abroad.

The lawyers in the Energy department are particularly involved in defending the industry and are resolutely committed to working alongside their clients to ensure the success of projects in which they believe. The team also stands out for its ability to provide projects with legal solutions that are both precise and pragmatic.
