Power Transmission

Trilegal extensively advises businesses on the legal aspects pertaining to the development and finance of greenfield projects, the acquisition and continued operation of brownfield projects, project development contracts, claims under and compliance with transmission regulations, grid codes, connectivity and licensing requirements.

The power transmission sector in India has evolved, driven by technological advancements, regulatory reforms and the growing need for grid connectivity for clean and renewable energy. The Indian transmission system is one of the largest synchronous interconnected electricity grids in the world, with over 4,70,000 circuit kilometres of transmission lines connecting generators and consumers throughout the country.

The Ministry of Power, Government of India, has accepted a report from a task force which identifies key improvements and upgrades to the transmission system in India (such as real-time monitoring, automated operations and resilience against cyber-attacks) to be implemented over the next five years. The Ministry has directed the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) to formulate standards and regulations to implement the recommendations of the task force. Other than offering consistent power to consumers, these proposed upgrades present an opportunity for stakeholders and investors to participate in utility-scale transmission projects that ensure reliable operations and steady revenue streams.

Trilegal works with, developers, investors, lenders and operators with business interests in the power transmission sector. Our deep expertise in managing legal and regulatory risks in this sector means that our team can advise on the development and finance of greenfield projects, as well as the acquisition and continued operation of brownfield projects.
