TLT has announced it is changing the name of its clean energy sector to future energy, reflecting the firm’s forward-thinking approach to the sector, as well as strengthening its commitments to supporting clients as their businesses develop in an ever-changing environment.

TLT has a strong 25-year track record of delivering innovative, first of a kind projects within the future energy sector. From advising on the UK’s first commercial wind and solar projects to delivering pathfinder projects for subsidy-free solar and wind, energy storage, hydrogen, tidal, and multi-technology projects and innovations in EV charging such as the world’s first electric forecourt. 

As a firm with sustainability front of mind, TLT has also set an ambitious strategy to achieve net zero. Sustainability is a key pillar of the firm’s strategy, and the firm is working with Carbon Intelligence to formalise its journey. Earlier this year, TLT’s commitment to setting science-based emissions reduction targets was formally recognised by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), meaning its carbon reduction strategy will be scientifically sound and independently verified. 

Maria Connolly, partner and head of TLT’s future energy team commented: “The future energy sector is fast-changing and ever-developing. Businesses are evolving quickly with companies looking to develop new project structures for existing technologies, as well as adding newer technologies to their list of assets. 

“Changing the sector name from clean energy to future energy is reflective of our efforts to stay ahead of the game and keep up-to-date with sector developments and new technologies. Being innovative and looking at what comes next underpins everything we do at TLT. The name ‘future energy’ highlights our commitment to anticipating change in order to position our clients as leaders in the sector”. 

Maria is responsible for positioning the firm as a global leader and trailblazer in the sector. Indeed, Maria spearheaded TLT’s first-of-a-kind strategy, which aims to drive the transition to an improved energy system by broadening the availability and accessibility of contributing technologies. This has included developing legal frameworks for clients to access the EV charging infrastructure market and breaking down barriers to entry. 

Other notable projects which are driving the transition to net zero with pioneering solutions include advising Green Investments Group’s portfolio company Cero Generation on its high-profile venture with Enso Energy to develop and build over 8GW of solar and battery projects, Ecotricity on the sale of the Electric Highway to sustainable energy company GRIDSERVE, and SSE on the acquisition of its first solar farm - a 30MW project in Worcestershire that is set to come online in late 2023.
