Power and Energy
The World of Power and Energy Has Never Been More Dynamic
Over the past decade, the world has seen fundamentally new sources of energy come online. Oil, gas, natural resources like wind and solar have permanently altered the industry and many suppliers have ventured into several of these sectors simultaneously.
Platform drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. The oil sands of Alberta. Lithium-ion factories in Cleveland and Kathmandu. Nuclear reactors at Indian Point and in India. Wind farms in Palm Springs and the Pacific Ocean. Wells, both onshore and offshore. Dams and grids, large and small. Crawford's Power and Energy group of has knowledge and experience across the diversity of issues that are unique to this industry.
The matrix of issues encountered by this industry is virtually infinite, encompassing but not limited to:
- Exposure to consumers, corporations, and governments
- Geography (local, national, global)
- Liability and litigations
- Operations failures
- Regulatory issues
