Renewable Energy

We helped put the ‘new’ in the UK’s renewables sector, advising on some of the country’s most innovative projects, including Wave Hub at Hayle and Wheal Jane Solar Park in Truro.

The future promises to be even more exciting, and by working in close partnership with our clients, we aim to push renewables even further up the energy agenda.

It’s certainly an exciting time to be involved in the industry. Many farmers, property owners and landowners are regularly approached by renewable energy providers with visions of wind, solar, wave, biomass or ground source projects – hardly surprising, knowing that renewables are worth more than £200m annually to the South West economy.

We’re widely recognised as experts in the renewables industry – specialists at putting together the deals which benefit investors, landowners and communities alike.

With our commercial approach, and our passion for understanding the intricacies of business and energy, we inject real value every step of the way. And with our open and friendly work ethos, you’ll find yourself turning to us for all aspects of your project’s journey, from launch and growth, to corporate and commercial, to contracts and disputes.

We look forward to helping your investment flourish and working together towards a cleaner, greener future.
