      Renewable Energy

      Rapidly growing our renewable energy capacity is essential to reducing our carbon impact and increasing our energy independence. For landowners and renewables developers the challenge is to unlock this opportunity in a way that benefits all.

      Crystal Rig Wind Farm, East Lothian
      CRYSTAL RIG WIND FARM

      Now in its fourth phase, Crystal Rig Wind Farm is a significant, renewable energy installation.

      Since the 1990s we’ve been at the forefront of energy & renewables, seeking opportunities to provide insight and advise our clients on wind, solar and hydro power.

      As experts in renewable energy with a deep commitment to climate change, we play a pivotal role in supporting landowners and developers to realise the opportunities in the zero-carbon transition. 

      We have been directly involved from the very first large-scale onshore wind farm installations. From replacing these assets when they reach the end of their operational lives to advising on solar and hydro schemes and emerging technologies such as hydrogen, biomass and anaerobic digestion we are the go-to team in energy and renewables. 

      We uniquely understand the requirements of both the landowner and renewables developer and have the expertise to put the property piece of the renewables’ jigsaw into place.  

      With unparalleled knowledge built up over 30 years we’ll help you negotiate a deal that will not only lead to a deliverable renewables scheme but provide appropriate compensation and give both parties peace of mind.

      Offshore grid connections

      The government is planning to quadruple renewable energy through offshore wind by 2030. This means wind farms will need to generate 50GWh that will all need to be connected to the grid via coastal land across the country.
