Isaac Murdy



Isaac is a solicitor with almost a decade of experience working with electricity, gas and water companies. He is a member of our specialist commercial energy and utilities team, and has a passion for the ongoing transformation of the energy and water sectors.

Isaac works with a range of clients, from developers bringing transition and renewable energy sources to market, to investors considering whether to invest in these projects. He works closely with our networks and commercial teams, offering support on regulatory questions as well as providing sector knowledge in the face of the myriad acronyms and technical terms within these specialist sectors. Isaac supports the Electricity System Operator with developing contracts needed to balance the UK’s electricity network as generation becomes increasingly decentralised and unpredictable.
Isaac aims to bring his enthusiasm for these sectors to any client problems. He has advised on a range of potential solutions to the challenge of achieving ‘Net Zero’. These include anerobic digestion plants, battery storage systems and district heating networks, tidal generation, blockchain powered peer-to-peer electricity trading, green and blue hydrogen production, and electric vehicle chargepoint infrastructure.
Isaac also advises on:
• grid connection agreements (including queries relating to the TEC amnesty, curtailable connections and the various industry codes);
• power purchase agreements (including sleeved or virtual arrangements);
• emissions trading schemes, energy attribution certificates, and greenwashing concerns;
• co-operation agreements and NDAs for startups and industry leaders;
• procurement and subsidy control concerns for utilities; and
• regulated activities within the energy industry (such as licence exempt supply and distribution of electricity).

Outside of his work as an energy solicitor, Isaac volunteers as an adventurous activities leader with the Nottinghamshire Scouts Adventure unit where he leads groups of young people on mountaineering and hillwalking expeditions around the UK.

In the face of the challenge posed by climate change, the enthusiasm and innovation of the energy sector is a rare source of hope. It is fantastic to be able to support these innovators so we can get manage the energy transition.
