Alan John, Partner, Bristol
- Energy & Utilities
I've been the head of the firm's environment and energy group since 1990. My practice has a focus on renewable energy, an area that Osborne Clarke is embedded in. I’ve advised on renewables projects for more than 20 years: I speak the language of the sector and am as enthusiastic about it as my clients.
The firm's renewable energy group, which I lead is known for its deep understanding of and commitment to the sector. Our experience spans all renewables technologies, including wind, solar, biomass, water, landfill gas, energy from waste and anaerobic digestion. Holistic advice on climate change, sustainability and low carbon business is a core part of my practice which encompasses waste management, contaminated land, pollution and environmental protection in business transactions. I have a particular specialism in power and heat purchase agreements and private wire supply arrangements.
I qualified in 1984 and have been a partner at Osborne Clarke since 1990. I’m also a director of Regen SW, the independent centre of sustainable energy expertise in the South West of England.
