District Utilities

We understand the importance of early engagement for the successful structuring of district utilities arrangements.

We advise on district utilities projects in the UK and internationally. This includes advice on structuring concessions for district heating and cooling, installation and operation of plant, property issues, cost recovery, tax and flowdown issues for construction contracts and property documents.

Our team advise on the full suite of contractual documentation, including long term energy concession agreements, energy related development obligations, services agreements (including operation and maintenance, billing, fuel purchase and tariff setting), construction contracts, consultant appointments and customer supply agreements. We provide early advice on phasing and procurement, risk management exercises, tariff structures and management of negotiations through to finalisation of contracts.

We understand the importance of early engagement for the successful structuring of district utilities arrangements. Our experience in the district utilities sector (including large scale ESCO/MUSCO contracts, medium term ‘hybrid’ or CEM schemes and outsourced developer services) means we are well placed to provide reliable advice on the market position at all key points during negotiations.
