Wind Energy

It’s now been over 70 years since the UK’s first utility-scale, grid-connected wind energy turbine started operating in the Orkney Islands. And the proliferation of onshore and offshore wind energy development over the last 20 years has made the UK a world leader, helping us on our continued journey towards net zero carbon emissions.

PWA Planning is proud to play a role in this continued push towards clean energy. Our team has built up decades of collective experience in supporting our clients with planning advice for renewable energy developments, including planning permission for wind energy schemes.

The funding and planning landscape for wind energy projects is always shifting and different parts of the UK also have their own local and regional rules.

As the local and regional governments push to identify more suitable sites for onshore wind energy in their local and neighbourhood plans, we can advise you on site feasibility for wind energy projects and carry out development appraisals for identified sites.

Our team of wind energy planning consultants can advise you on the best planning strategies for wind energy developments and manage the whole planning process.
