Renewable energy opportunities - at the right price

January 2011

renewable energy news

The gold rush is well and truly on with a large number of landowners and farmers considering renewable energy projects such as single wind turbines, hydro, woodchip biomass and solar PV schemes as diversification enterprises.

With attractive returns on investment of over 10% - and often in excess of 20% quoted, the pressure is on to install and commission schemes before the review of the Government Feed in Tariffs (FiT’s) in 2012.

However, David Powell advises that to achieve the best returns it is important to choose the right technology at the right price and site it in the right position. There are a number of product suppliers and investors currently in the market place approaching landowners - especially with larger scale projects.

Landowners are advised not to jump in feet first and sign a contract or agree terms without fully considering the potential returns and negotiating hard on the deal with expert help. With ‘potentially’ attractive returns from projects or rents on offer, David Powell warns: "It is essential that any landowner or farming business considering signing up to a contract takes independent advice or risk ending up with an expensive mistake or a poor deal”.

David adds: “Many renewable energy companies or consultants are usually tied to - or in partnership with - a particular technological supplier and are only likely to consider that type of technology”.

Fisher German have established relationships with a number of reputable renewable energy companies and investors who we can recommend to clients, but the firm remains independent of any technological supplier.

The renewable energy team are currently advising clients on a large number of projects with small to medium wind turbines and solar PV schemes being the most popular. Identifying opportunities, site appraisals, conducting feasibility studies, competitive tendering, planning, finance and project management are all part of the renewable energy package on offer.

If you are considering a renewable energy project, or have a potential site that may be suitable to be leased to an investor, contact David Powell for an informal discussion on 01905 453275 or 07918 677566 email david.powell@fishergerman.co.uk
