Affordable and Clean Energy

Target Case studies
By 2030, ensure universal access to affordable, reliable and modern energy services. We advised the sponsors - SSE Renewables, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and SDIC Power - on the construction and financing of the £2.6bn 588-megawatt, 84 turbine Beatrice offshore wind farm, a deal which represents the latest in a long line of offshore wind farms upon which Linklaters has advised. It follows hot on the heels of the £1.3billion project financing of the Dudgeon offshore wind farm. Linklaters is also currently advising on the UK’s largest biomass transaction and has recently been awarded IJGlobal’s ‘Latin America Wind Deal of the Year 2016’ for our contribution to the financing of Parque E¤îlico Cabo Leones I in Chile. Our updated report, “Renewable Energy in Africa”, presents analysis that shows that economic development and the deployment of renewable energy technology are becoming increasingly synergistic, driven by the falling costs of renewable energy. The report also describes de-risking policies that might be employed in African markets to encourage investment in this space, and provides case studies of the experience of Morocco and South Africa in enabling significant investment in this space.
By 2030, increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
By 2030, double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency.

By 2030, enhance international cooperation to facilitate access to clean energy

research and technology, including renewable energy, energy efficiency and advanced

and cleaner fossil fuel technology, and promote investment in energy infrastructure

and clean energy technology.

By 2030 expand infrastructure and upgrade technology for supplying

modern and sustainable energy services for all in developing

countries, small islands developing States, and land-locked developing

countries, in accordance with their respective programmes of support
