We advise you in the areas of project development, preparation of bids, conversion and new construction of plants, takeover of power plants and technology studies.

To be open to new market models is a challenge in conditions that are difficult for the energy sector. This is particularly true in the areas of combined heat and power generation and renewable energies. The latest amendment to the CHP law (2020), featuring a process for inviting bids that promote plants between 0.5 and 50 MW as well as for innovative CHP systems, provides planning security. In addition, the 2021 amendment to the German renewable energy law (EEG) creates opportunities to market biomass plants in a way that is profitable.

For energy providers, the key to success is to quickly make the right decisions regarding upcoming construction projects. We help you do that! With our energy sector, energy law and energy technology know-how, we are offering you comprehensive services beginning with the design phase that provide an optimal basis for sustainable investments in the areas of electricity, heat, refrigeration, energy storage and Power to X (e.g. hydrogen).
