A holistic approach to energy and renewable related property issues sets Ros head and shoulders above her peers.

Having specialised in renewables for over 15 years, she has a detailed understanding of the projects, developers and landowners within the sector and leads our energy and renewables team through the winds of change that test this expanding market.

Ros has a genuine desire to combat climate change and is driven to create a more sustainable way of life for future generations. Keen business acumen, a background in law, immersive sector knowledge and an ability to react to innovative and legislative changes is why landowners and developers secure her services.

With many wind farms entering repowering and life extension phases, Ros is deploying her expertise to negotiate terms and look beyond traditional option and lease agreements. Technology and opportunities are constantly evolving and this is what keeps Ros passionate about her work.

She is currently involved with crucial upgrade projects for some of the UK's original commercial windfarms and advised on the 50-turbine 4.8MW South Kyle project - one of 2020's largest subsidy-free onshore wind developments. Ros also specialises in negotiating land rights for offshore windfarms.

Ros is MRICS accredited.

Ros has an excellent understanding of what we do and what we need, she is a good communicator and an expert in the renewables business.
Graham Carter - Enga Ltd
Ros has built a formidable team in Scotland with a deep bank of knowledge in all areas of renewable energy project management. I could not recommend Ros' Renewables team at Bidwells highly enough.

Hagshaw Repower

Our landowning client asked us to explore their options when the developer sought to amend their draft lease for the repowering of a windfarm site and extend the lease term by nine years to maximise the life of the next generation of turbines. This complex situation required foresight and attention to detail to consider appropriate variations to lease terms.

Crystal Rig Wind Farm

When commissioned in 2003, the original Crystal Rig was the largest windfarm in Scotland. With a further 11 turbines now consented, the site will eventually exceed 100.
