Helen will continue to advise clients locally and nationally on energy projects throughout the UK. She advises developers, funds, asset managers, investors, landowners and community groups on new projects, maximising the value of existing projects, financing projects, acquisitions and disposals across a range of technologies including solar, wind, anaerobic digestion, energy from waste and energy storage.
