Renewable Energy and Windfarms

Renewable energy and windfarm law is an increasingly important area of law and one for which the team here at Walsh and Partners are fully equipped to deal with. With the onset of new Government initiatives, the growth in the renewable energy sector has boomed over the past decade and looks set to grow exponentially right across the country. With this in mind we urge participants and those considering taking part in the sector to get in touch with a member of our team immediately for expert advice. Do NOT sign any contracts or letters of intent until you have spoken with a legal expert who can guide you through the process and your obligations.


Renewable Energy Law Ireland

As renewable energy looks set to become one of the primary sources of energy in Ireland over the next decade, we realise the importance of protecting the participants in these schemes as well as those in the local environs. We are happy to provide legal assistance and advice to farmers, land owners, contractors, developers, investors and community groups. Walsh and Partners have worked in the renewable energy sector for over a decade and we are well-versed in the importance of not just renewable energy but cost-efficiency for all parties involved.

We look forward to hearing from you if you are:

  • A farmer who is contemplating allowing your land to be used for renewable energy purposes.
  • A landowner who has been approached by a developer.
  • A developer looking advice about emerging technologies or renewable energy schemes.
  • A commercial enterprise exploring new renewable energy technologies.
  • A national or international enterprise interested in investing in renewable energy in Ireland.

The team at Walsh and Partners will work with all parties from the planning stages on greenfield and established sites, right through to commissioning. We will also continue to be available throughout the contract term to provide legal support and renewable energy legal advice to all concerned.

Important Legal Advice for Farmers and Landowners:
Do not sign any documents without first speaking with a legal advisor who is familiar with the technicalities of wind farm and renewable energy contracts. Never sign an option agreement without the assistance of the team here at Walsh and Partners Solicitors. Option Agreements are without doubt one of the most onerous documents that you can sign and you could be giving up the rights to your land without ever having the option to renegotiate. Once an Option Agreement is signed, this agreement forms the basis of your lease and there is no further scope for negotiation. Always speak to a solicitor before signing any documentation. Walsh and Partners will examine all option agreements and leases and negotiate on your behalf.
