PWA Planning has built up an impressive energy planning specialism, working to gain planning permission for energy projects across the UK.

Our team has experience in helping sustainable energy providers and landowners gain consent for a wide range of renewable energy schemes, including wind, solar, energy storage, and energy from waste projects.

Planning for renewable energy projects requires a deep understanding of planning law and the intricacies of the renewable energy sector, an area in which PWA has built up a key specialism.

Energy Storage Planning

In recent years, our energy team has developed a niche specialism in planning services for energy storage projects and other alternative energy schemes across the UK.

Our expertise in energy storage schemes has helped new providers enter the market, while farmers and landowners are able to realise value from their land assets.

We’ve helped a number of clients in this sector gain planning permission for energy storage schemes, helping to provide vital grid balancing services.

This has included energy storage schemes in the green belt and projects that require detailed environmental and landscape mitigation strategies.

From conducting development potential assessments and offering pre-application advice, to managing and submitting applications, we can manage the entire process on your behalf.

Solar Energy

PWA has also developed a strong specialism in planning permission for solar energy projects in the UK, one that stays in tune with the government’s agenda on renewable and low carbon energy.

From small and medium solar energy projects, to large scale solar developments, our team has the solar energy planning expertise to support your aspirations.

We work with solar energy providers as a long-term partner, guiding them through the process, helping them submit planning applications for solar energy schemes, and supporting them to develop a strong pipeline of sites with planning permission.

Wind Energy

Our team has built up decades of collective experience in supporting 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 will also have their own local and regional rules.

Our team of wind energy planners are able to advise clients on the best planning strategies for wind energy developments.
