Matheson recently advised Brookfield Renewable, one of the world’s largest publicly traded, pure-play renewable power platforms, on its corporate power purchase agreement with Facebook in respect of a new 28.8 megawatt onshore wind farm known as Lisheen III in Co. Tipperary, Ireland.

The Matheson team was led by  Garret Farrelly, partner and head of the Energy and Infrastructure Group, who was assisted by associates  Seán Scally and  Owen Collins.

Garret commented: “We were delighted to support the Brookfield Renewable team on this landmark deal for the Irish market. We expect that Corporate PPAs such as this will play a critical role in Ireland achieving its renewable energy targets in the coming years, in addition to projects supported by RESS. Our mandate on this deal (as well as all Corporate PPAs signed in Ireland to date) reinforces Matheson’s position as a market-leading adviser on Corporate PPAs and Irish renewable energy projects.”
