Stuart is a member of our Energy team focusing on the real estate aspects of renewables and utilities. He has detailed knowledge and expertise in this sector and provides strategic and transactional advice to developers and funders of energy projects. He has experience in both renewables - solar, wind (on and off shore), energy from waste (AD and biomass) as well as the traditional energy supplies - gas and electricity operational properties. He also has detailed experience advising utilities and telecoms companies on acquisition of their operational network sites.
Stuart has negotiated the key documents for the Pivot Power large scale battery and EV infrastructure partnership with National Grid and is currently overseeing the roll out of 45 sites. He has drafted the precedent documents for both wind and solar developers acquiring a number of options to enable a roll out of subsidy related portfolio for an onward sale and advised on the structuring of those documents and the overall sale transaction. Stuart also advised a solar developer on the roll out of its rooftop portfolio including drafting the suite of precedents required for the different ownership structures.
Stuart has acted on over 100 sites of solar deployment in the UK ranging from domestic portfolio acquisition (including housing association sites) up to large scale ground mounted solar sites including two of the largest developed UK sites. He is now overseeing the roll out of subsidy free solar for several clients and has recently sold a large solar development in Wales of 50+MW with storage and wind options alongside.
