Renewable energy

Renewable energy has come of age. Around one-third of the UK’s electricity needs are now produced from renewal sources, meaning that the electricity powering your kettle for your mid-morning coffee is just as likely to be generated from a renewal source as it is from burning coal or gas. Lodders’ team of specialists has a wealth of knowledge, and is here to expertly guide you through the legal implications of installing renewable energy, from solar panels to wind turbines.

Not sure that this is the service for you? Take a look at some of our frequently asked questions for more information.

Renewable energy exists in many forms such as solar energy, wind power, hydroelectric, geothermal, etc.

Renewable energy marks a level of power generation drawn from sources that are naturally replenishing but flow-limited and considered inexhaustible.

The Lodders team has advised on renewable energy projects involving solar panels, wind turbines, gas-fired reserve power stations, and electric car charging points. We also regularly advise property developers.

Despite the giant dams dotted around the country, we produce very little hydro-electric power, most of the UK’s renewable energy comes from wind turbines and solar farms.

Lodders team of experts can help you if you own land and are approached by an operator or developer looking to install wind turbines or photovoltaic (PV) solar panels on your property, as well as the associated telecoms infrastructure and the network of electricity substations. The renewable energy revolution is also underpinned by a less well-known network of small gas-fired reserve power stations, which can be fired up if the wind doesn’t blow or the sun doesn’t shine.

In each case, our experienced solicitors can advise you and help you to get the right deal, including when it comes to your tax planning and looking at the complexities of the Smart Export Guarantee.

Our expert team also has considerable experience in acting for wind farm operators and PV developers, who are busily building this new green infrastructure. And don’t forget about electric car charging points, which are beginning to look like the petrol filling stations of the future!

Whether you are developing land for the production of solar energy for a whole new settlement, erecting a single wind turbine, putting in a reserve power station, or installing a row of public car-charging points, we are here to help and assist you.
