We can offer an end-to-end service, from feasibility studies to asset management, with as much or as little involvement as you want. You can also choose from any of our services below to complement your in-house resources.


Whether your project is a large-scale solar farm or small battery storage facility, we can help you through the development processes that will enable it to be built.

Our team has extensive experience of securing the relevant permits, permissions and legal agreements.We can manage all aspects of the planning application, obtaining a grid offer, stakeholder management and relevant legal documentation such as wayleaves.

Community & commercial finance

We are experienced in structuring a range of financial models depending on your requirements, from commercial investment to community funding, or a mix of the two.

Community investment is a fantastic way of getting local people involved and on board with your project. We developed the UK’s first solar farms funded by a Council-backed solar bond, which raised £1.8 million, and ISA-eligible solar bond, which raised £2.4 million.

We can also help you bid for suitable funding from specialist lenders.

We will then ensure the scheme progresses against the agreed finance and ownership model.

Engaging with the community

Positive community engagement is critical when developing a renewable energy project. We always ensure that the local community is placed at the heart of the project, going above and beyond the normal requirements of the planning process.

Before the planning application is submitted, communities will be invited to participate in assessing any scheme through a variety of consultation events and mailings, as agreed with the client.

We can also advise on community benefit packages and community investment opportunities.

For example, Wroughton Airfield Solar Farm includes a community investment fund of £62,000 per annum
