In Scotland, the renewables sector is growing, year on year, with ambitious targets for the future.

This presents major economic opportunities for anyone with an interest in the sector – landowners, developers, farmers and communities. We can help you realise that potential with our specialist knowledge and experience of the sector, from initial planning, consenting, financial modelling and funding, through to tax implications and contract agreements.

We have extensive experience of a wide range of renewable energy projects featuring a variety of technologies including Wind, Marine, Hydro, District Heating Schemes, Solar, Energy Service Companies and Community Energy projects, and operate as a specialist in this niche, but fast growing area.

We have substantial experience in project finance, financial modelling and all aspects of technical, legal and financial due diligence. Operationally, we are involved in the Renewable Energy sector on a daily basis and have a strong commercial understanding of the complex regulatory regime underpinning the industry, together with a strong network of contacts and funders within the sector. We have hands-on experience of assisting projects through the development, consenting, funding, construction and operational phases.

The structure of the deal will be driven by a complex interplay of tax issues, commercial issues and funding but it is likely to be down to a choice between a limited liability partnership (LLP) and a limited company.

We offer the following services:

  • Development of detailed financial models to support business planning
  • Financial due diligence on project viability
  • Tax implications and structure of the deal
  • Support for renewable energy generators seeking project finance
  • Ongoing business administration, accounts preparation and SPV management
