Energy law and project finance are inextricably linked, going hand in hand in any energy project. Lydian has assisted in the elaboration of various large and medium scale energy projects for electricity generation in Belgium, involving both fossil fuels and renewables. We have been able to work on the project finance side on many large-scale energy transactions, in which we advised private companies as well as (PPP) government bodies.
Legal assistance in energy projects covers typical project finance issues, such as setting up financing structures, finance documentation, tailoring the appropriate security interests, including derivatives schemes. On the energy side of the project, this category of work involves both the preliminary contacts with the regulatory authorities and permit-issuing administrations, as well as the development of tailored corporate and contractual mechanisms within the regulated framework of network access.
