Energy from Waste

While only making up a small proportion of energy generation in the UK, Energy from Waste (EfW) projects play a vital role in diverting waste from landfill and creating a circular economy.

As the technology continues to improve and investor appetite for renewables grows, funding is becoming more readily available for larger scale projects that can successfully treat residual waste while generating low carbon energy.

PWA Planning works with Energy from Waste companies and landowners to provide high quality planning advice and planning strategies to make these projects a reality.

With the operational challenges that EfW plants can experience and the potential for local opposition, we can advise you on site viability for Energy from Waste projects and the mitigation strategies that can help you achieve planning permission.

Whether it’s a conventional EfW plant, or an aerobic digestion project using biogas to create combined heat and power, PWA Planning has the planning law knowledge and technical planning expertise to offer you the right advice.

We can also advise you on Environmental Impact Assessments or any public consultation programmes that may be required as part of the planning process for Energy from Waste facilities.
