Energy & Natural Resources  
 

The liberalization of the Greek energy market is an ongoing process, which commenced with the implementation of directive 96/92/EC through law 2773/1999. Since, there has been considerable regulatory activity aiming at the improvement of the legal framework, the elimination of existing obstacles and the provision of investment incentives mainly through subsidies. Even though some unresolved issues still exist, the opening up of the Greek energy market has created significant new investment chances for enterprises, especially those active in the field of renewable energy sources (RES).

Despite the attractiveness of the sector, foreign companies may be reluctant to enter the Greek energy market due to the complexity of the pertinent legal framework and of the procedure for the issuance of the necessary licenses. Solicitation by lawyers experienced in energy law is therefore necessary to foreign companies, which consider entering the domestic market. Our office had the opportunity to participate at an early stage in this field by providing consultancy services to an authority with energy related competences and to foreign companies active in the field of RES and of co-generation, which decided to expand their activities in Greece.

Our experience in the field of energy law covers issues related to the procedures for the granting of the necessary permits (most importantly the production and the installation permit) and other public law matters, the financing of such projects including possibilities of a project’s subsidization and the drafting of contracts related to the construction, maintenance and operation of an energy project.
