Powering Infrastructure Projects

We have a wealth of experience in all areas of renewable and other energy infrastructure projects

We’re proud to have an extremely strong track-record in large-scale energy projects, including advising on one of the largest solar projects in England, one of the largest industrial solar developments across two of the UK’s largest car manufacturing plants, one of the largest waste to energy plants in the South East, and the first Green Investment Bank investment.

From developers and landowners to funders, we can act on the full range of energy infrastructure projects, ranging from rooftop and ground mounted solar PV through to onshore wind, biomass, EfW, river hydro and battery storage

"We have adapted with our clients to the ever-changing frenewable energy projects, and we are currently engaged in large-scale subsidy free solar including a 150 acre site in Leicestershire. We are also acting on multiple schemes for land owners and developers."
