OLF’s renewable energy competency is rooted in close, personal involvement at various stages in the development of hundreds of solar and wind project. OLF assists owners, Engineering, Procurement and Constructions (EPC) contractors, subcontractors, and vendors alike in tailoring the project’s documentation to the project’ specific, time-critical needs.
In the renewable energies any project is unique, and OLF structures it to address the offtaker’s requirements, land-use restrictions, budgetary constraints, tax considerations, and the many other challenges that the project faces.
Our team has negotiated, drafted and closed contracts for various projects, including utility power purchase agreements (PPA); utility interconnection agreements; EPC contracts and associated subcontracts for materials and various construction scopes; loan and security agreement; a municipal economic development agreement for creating jobs and establishing a factory; and numerous ancillary contracts related to these projects.
OLF analyzes various countries’ renewable energy laws to optimize projects’ returns on investment and workes with bilateral investment treaties, letters of credit, and contractual provisions to craft favorable international dispute-resolution structures.
