Many farmers and landowners are realising the value in making some of their land available for energy generation projects.
However, fast-changing government policy, volatility in energy markets and varying financial incentives, mean joint ventures with third parties cannot be entered into lightly.
We work closely with farmers and landowners to ensure they can generate maximum income, while also ensuring their long-term interests are protected.
Whether its solar panels, wind turbines, biomass, energy from waste, or other forms of energy generation, we are able to advise our clients in the following areas:
- Business case analysis
- Negotiation of option agreements
- Planning permission for renewables projects
- Leases and land occupancy arrangements
- Liaison with energy and utility companies
There are many factors that will decide whether investment in renewable technologies will be beneficial to the business, so all options need to be explored fully.
