Robert Büchner advises market players of the entire value chains of electricity, gas and heat in order to raise, combine and maintain economic potentials and, if necessary, to defend them in court. In addition to existing supply concepts, he designs new projects in the electricity and heat sector. In day-to-day operations, Mr Büchner supports companies in recognising and efficiently managing the multitude of constantly changing regulatory requirements.
A particular focus of his advice is on supporting energy-intensive companies in all aspects of energy compliance. This includes, in particular, the design and implementation of legally compliant measurement and estimation concepts for recording energy flows at the company's location, compliance with all reporting and notification obligations under energy law and the development of strategies for optimising ancillary electricity costs.
