Onshore Wind

RPS has been successfully delivering planning permissions and consents for onshore wind energy projects across the UK and Ireland for over 10 years.

Our success is built upon working closely with our clients and applying our expertise in planning, environmental and technical matters during project feasibility, development and design to achieve projects that are both consentable and commercially viable. We also have strong working relationships with government, planning authorities and key statutory consultees, thereby minimising the risk of problems or delays being incurred once applications have been submitted.

RPS is able to lead and/or assist clients on every aspect of the project life cycle for onshore wind energy projects, including: site selection and feasibility; site layout and design; pre-application consultation and community engagement; environmental impact assessment; planning consent and construction management.
