Renewable Energy

Our renewable energy team supports our clients to deliver projects on time and on budget, often against the backdrop of tight deadlines driven by the fast moving policy environment.

With a strong track record in solar, wind and biomass, we have worked on a wide range of projects, from portfolios of small schemes, to large-scale bespoke projects where the ability to support on planning and consenting, as well as scheme accreditation and funding, are key.

Fundamental to our work in this area is a detailed grasp of the full range of support schemes which underpin the financing of renewable projects, notably the Feed-in Tariffs, the Renewables Obligation (RO) scheme, the Electricity Market Reform (EMR) Contract for Difference regime, and the Renewable Heat Incentive.

Our clients expect us to keep abreast of developments in this area, and we work tirelessly to have good visibility of what’s ahead, allowing us to guide you with the right solution.
