If you are considering the potential for wind, hydro, biomass, landfill gas, anaerobic digestion or any other type of renewables development on your land, whether on a large or small scale, or if you will be affected by such a development, Turcan Connell's renewable energy lawyers can advise you on all stages of the process.
Having guided over 200 landowners in relation to wind and hydro schemes and taken many projects to the stage of commencement of generation and beyond, we have built an excellent reputation in the renewables sector over more than a decade.
Following the introduction of the Feed-in Tariffs or "clean energy cash back" scheme our renewable energy lawyers have advised both landowners and developers on the best ways to structure such developments, whether they are undertaken by the landowners alone or as joint ventures with others, and have taken a large number of projects to completion.
Our team understands the needs and particular concerns of landowners and farmers and can suggest innovative solutions to allow developments to proceed, dealing in particular with any agricultural tenancy or crofting issues which may arise. We also have considerable experience of the issues raised where wind farms cover several different land ownership areas. In addition to our property experts, our business law team advises regularly on business structures for use in renewable development and on procurement issues and our tax and succession specialists can also offer their advice on the taxation consequences of these transactions and any related tax planning or mitigation opportunities.
