250 strong crowd attend 8 RICS renewable energy CPD seminars

RICS renewable energy seminars

In the autumn of 2014, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) chose renewable energy experts Fisher German to deliver training to RICS valuers. This training has now been successfully delivered to 250 surveyors and professionals.

Eight lectures were given across the UK on the increasingly prevalent topic of how to value renewable energy assets.  The well attended seminars informed delegates of the most appropriate valuation methods to be applied to energy assets.

Fisher German started their training programme over three years ago when they were approached by a major bank and asked to help their bank managers with due diligence and valuations for secured lending purposes. This led to delivering training programmes to a number of the leading UK banks on the subject of Renewable Energy and also helping them evolve associated lending policies.

Mark Newton, head of the renewable energy sector comments “there are now a large number of renewable energy projects that are being or have been built in the UK. We have been involved in projects for over 10 years and ever more specialist valuations are required.

One example is that a great deal of the land sold in the past has an overage clause on it. This means the new owner has to pay the original vendor an agreed percentage of the increase in value as a result of the renewable energy project. This seems to be causing a large amount of valuation dispute. We have been involved in valuing AD, wind, hydro, solar and renewable heat projects.  The scale of installations has ranged from domestic level up to large scale 50MW solar parks and wind farms of up to 180MWs”.

Darren Edwards a partner specialising in renewable energy adds “we are also involved in independent expert witness work and mediation with cases heading for the High Court in London and the Lands Tribunal in Scotland.  We are seeing an increase in asset valuations involving renewable energy projects and overall we expect this to be a growth area going forward as more projects are built out and traded.  Judging by the attendance of surveyors and other professionals at the RICS seminars, this is a view widely shared."
