Energy and Natural Resources

Our energy and natural resources lawyers deliver to our clients the focused, innovative sector advice they need, in Rwanda and beyond. 

We are entering an era of unprecedented demand for power generation and transmission in Africa, particularly in Rwanda. This dynamic, together with the challenges we all face from climate change, is creating opportunities for alternative energies and new technologies. 

Our energy clients receive coordinated, across-the-board coverage for their needs, including construction and projects, corporate, competition, regulatory, contractual, trading, litigation/arbitration, dispute resolution and tax issues. We understand the technical, geographical, commercial and geopolitical factors that shape the industry and have first-hand access to contacts, sponsors and decision makers.

Experience has included advising:

  • A local energy company in the implementation of a 5 MW hydro power project in Rwanda
  • A multinational energy company in relation to the implementation of a 9.5 MW mini-hydro power plant project in Rwanda
  • A multinational energy company in the developing of a 50 MW methane gas fired power plant in Rwanda
