John focuses on energy projects, carbon finance and trading, and infrastructure law, with a particular emphasis on renewable energy and distributed generation both conventional and unconventional.

John's experience began with UK wind projects and has moved into a broad spectrum of global renewable energy projects, including onshore/offshore wind, biomass, large hydro, run-of-river hydro, energy-from-waste and PV (ground and rooftop). John acts for developers, banks, equity providers, employers and contractors in this field. He has advised on projects around the world, including Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Eastern Europe and across the European Union.
