Energy and natural resources

REVERA’s experience comprises comprehensive administration of projects involving mining operations and renewable energy sources.

REVERA’s lawyers contributed greatly to the construction of a number of solar plants, wind plants, biogas units and landfill gas units, with an overall power of over 50 MW.

Due to statutory assignment of quotas for the construction of new ‘green’ power plants intending to sell energy to state-run networks, this sphere has seen a decrease of new projects. REVERA’s lawyers are ready to consult you on the issues of construction of new ‘green’ power plants for in-house needs of Belarusian companies aiming to comply with the present requirement to have a minimal share of ‘green’ energy in the production process. This trend is likely to shape the development of the Belarusian renewable energy market.
