Financing the Energy Transition: Global Trends in Renewable Energy (April 7, 2022)
Access the webinar
Renewables, which include wind, solar and other renewables, hit a new investment record of $366 billion committed in 2021 – and investment is set to grow exponentially. Given the current energy transition needs and an upcoming policy overhaul, financing is essential to achieve investment milestones and project development goals. In this webinar, our energy and financing practitioners discuss options, trends, and considerations to help bring clarity as project developers, lenders, and investors move forward with their energy transition strategy.

Hydrogen: from talking to walking – Key issues and pioneering projects (February 15, 2022)
Access the webinar
Hydrogen continues to gain momentum, with a number of countries accelerating the development of hydrogen policies and increasing production capacities. This is accompanied by an increase in pioneering hydrogen projects around the world aimed at developing supply chains and reducing costs. It is clear that hydrogen will remain an essential component of the energy transition and that it will play a leading role in the race for decarbonisation. In this webinar, our industry-focused practitioners discuss the potential for adapting and expanding existing market structures and models to the new hydrogen market, as well as key issues emerging from pioneering hydrogen projects.

Carbon capture and storage: from policy to project implementation and its role in the energy transition (July 15, 2021)
Access the webinar
Carbon capture and storage technology offers opportunities to significantly reduce the impact of abundant but environmentally damaging fossil fuels during the transition to a low-carbon economy. The capture, transport, storage and long-term management of carbon pose unique challenges to policy makers, regulators and project developers.

Join our market-leading professionals and guest speaker Ian Havercroft, Senior Consultant – Policy, Legal & Regulatory at the Global CCS Institute, to learn more about:

  • Capture, storage and its importance in the energy transition
  • Current legal and regulatory landscape in key jurisdictions
  • Main risks and structural problems and how they are treated in the main markets

The impact of the new EU taxonomy on the energy sector (May 18, 2021)
Access the webinar
The EU taxonomy will impact both access to finance and the perception of companies and investors as ‘green’ or not. Find out how this new legislation determines whether an economic activity is considered “sustainable” and how it applies specifically (or not) to the production of renewable energy, hydrogen and CCS, among others. This webinar explores:

  • Why is the EU taxonomy important? (00:00 – 05:26 minutes)
  • What are the practical obligations associated with the EU taxonomy? (05:27 – 16:45 mins)
  • How does the EU taxonomy work? (4:45 p.m. – 26:58 mins)
  • How does the EU taxonomy apply to the energy sector? (from 26:59 minutes)

What will the future of energy look like in the United States under a Biden administration? (December 16, 2020)
Access the webinar
Baker McKenzie’s Energy and Environment groups hosted a webinar to examine what lies ahead for the energy sector under a Biden administration and his ambitious plan for a “clean energy revolution and environmental justice.” The panel spoke about the potential impacts of the Biden administration’s immediate and long-term actions on the conventional and renewable energy sector, as companies seek to transform and diversify their portfolios and market offerings. The team also discussed expected climate change regulatory initiatives and expanded ESG reporting and disclosure efforts that may affect the direction and pace of the energy transition in the United States.

Opportunities and challenges in new offshore wind markets
Access the webinar
Global offshore wind capacity reached 29 GW in 2019, a tenfold increase since 2010. As Europe sits at the center of the offshore market, competing without subsidies and floating in deeper waters, offshore wind is growing rapidly into new markets as technology costs fall and profit margins shrink. for onshore projects become squeezed by bidding and fluctuating electricity prices. In this webinar, our practitioners discuss the risks and opportunities facing offshore wind and the potential for development into new markets.
