DWD and its staff have advised clients including Belectric, Hive Energy and Luminous Energy on the development of in excess of 40 solar farms in locations across the UK. The solar farms range in size from 1 megawatt up to 49 megawatts. The largest site covered an area of in excess of 100 hectares, requiring the consideration of a number of complex planning and environmental issues.
Services provided by DWD have included devising consenting strategies, the preparation and submission of planning applications, site identification and appraisal, community consultation, alternative site assessment and speaking at planning committee. DWD’s advice has resulted in numerous successful projects, many of which are currently generating renewable energy.
