Tim Vermeir

Uccle, 1973

By coincidence, I ended up in the legal world of utilities. I have been there for 21 years with a great intellectual hunger. Complex legal problems make me happy. I am involved in the Bar association.

Practice areas

  • Closed distribution systems, energy communities, private distribution systems, direct lines and pipelines
  • Production, supply and consumption of electricity, natural gas and heat
  • Green certificates, CHP certificates, guarantees of origin and renewable energy projects
  • Contacts with public grid operators and regulators, access and connection, energy fraud


  • Closed distribution systems (BASF Antwerpen; Borealis); direct line of WINGAS
  • Assisting PV projects (Kristal Solar Park, Floating PV)
  • Energy communities (Rolecs-project; Clean Energy Park Zellik)
  • Procedures for eni, Eneco, E.ON, PV Vlaanderen, StädteRegion Aachen, WINGAS, …

Let’s work together!

Do you have an energy project? Are you lost in the legal labyrinth? Do you need advice from a small and specialised team?
