If you are thinking of embarking on a renewable energy scheme we can help you by providing informed advice on the financial and tax planning elements of your project. These are the building blocks for your future financial security, and there is only one opportunity to get these decisions right.
Renewable energy schemes run for decades and so in addition to considering the project feasibility, at the outset it is important to get the ownership in the right hands. Our Renewable Energy Team acts for landowners, developers, supply chain businesses to the sector and other stakeholders. Our experience covers hydro, on-shore wind, solar, anaerobic digestion and biomass projects for installations from 15 kilowatts to 114 megawatts. Altogether, we have advised on over 100 projects with a potential output of over 1,500MW.
