Government incentives, planning permissions and international treaties - the legislative framework is slowly but steadily changing the renewable energy sector. David Gilchrist, Principal at the Edinburgh based law firm Castletown Law, talks to Discover Cleantech about the COP26 and what more is needed to decarbonise the sector.

With 20 years of experience incorporate and commercial law, David has worked extensively across the energy, infrastructure and transport sectors. Two years ago, he and a handful of likeminded specialists established Castletown Law. As the firm’s primary purpose is to support the decarbonising activities of the energy sector, the changing international legal framework on carbon emissions plays a significant role in the practice of the firm. Indeed, says David, since the Kyoto Protocol was signed in 1997, the different pieces of international law signed have been vital in the development of the renewable sectors.
