A functioning market needs clear and reliable rules. This is especially true in a world that is becoming increasingly complex. Effective and just regulation should therefore not only take into account the different interests of the market participants, but also the multi-layered interactions in a comprehensive energy system. Balance, goal orientation and openness to technology are fundamentally important principles. As an independent advisor with comprehensive market knowledge, we help you maintain an overview and effectively shape the future.

In particular, we support you in the current and dynamic development of the regulatory framework for hydrogen and energy carriers and chemical raw materials produced from it. This concerns legal requirements such as the reduction of greenhouse gases in transport or the increase of the share of renewable energies in fuels through the Fuel Quality Directive and the Renewable Energy Directive on the European level as well as the national implementation of these directives. Relevant regulations affecting other sectors and industries such as the chemical and petrochemical industry, refineries, energy supply and storage etc. are also part of our portfolio. Furthermore, we support you in the field of hydrogen network regulation at European and national level.
