Law firm Norton Rose Fulbright will participate at this year’s Africa Energy Indaba as a partner, providing a legal perspective on energy sector laws.

The global law firm provides a business law service, with an industry focus throughout major key industries, including the energy industry.

“It is important to have a legal perspective, to guide stakeholders on what is lawfully possible and which further adjustments should be made to energy laws and regulations to achieve policy goals,” says directors Greg Nott, Matthew Ash and Tina Costas.

Norton Rose Fulbright will moderate and participate in panel discussions, including the energy storage panel, and will focus on energy storage and the just energy transition.

Nott, Ash and Costas say the regulatory framework for the energy sector is becoming increasingly complex across various industries, including the electricity sector, which is facing complications owing to adjustments made to the Electricity Regulation Act.

The transition to net zero in South Africa is meant to balance a decline in the country’s carbon footprint while mitigating financial risks and social impacts as the country moves away from using coal-fired energy as its main energy source, they add.

South Africa’s Nationally Determined Contribution aims to achieve a total decline of greenhouse gases by 2040. Nott, Ash and Costas say various policies and measures have been, and will be, introduced in line with these aims.

“Norton Rose Fulbright is at the forefront of energy sector work globally, and in South Africa in particular. Delegates will receive the benefit of years of experience of our teams in energy projects, and our current up-to-date legal inputs on critical issues currently faced by sector participants,” they conclude.
