Renewables & Sustainability

Renewable energy has the potential to transform all types of rural property. We help landowners capitalise on this potential.

Renewable energy can deliver significant new income streams for landowners. But in a sector where technology, government policy and financial support are in flux, expert and trusted advice is vital to maximise the potential returns on investment from renewable energy.

We can advise on every aspect of a proposed development, from an initial feasibility study to site finding, planning, grant funding, feed-in tariffs/ROCs and electricity sales.

Transactional advice

If you are looking to buy or sell an existing renewable energy project, such as a wind farm; lease land for a new development or acquire land for existing or new power stations, we can help.


We can provide RICS-accredited valuations of renewable energy sites for transactional or secured lending purposes.
