The RPM Development Management team has a proven track record of taking projects from initial concept to planning permission, securing over 240MW of onshore wind, solar array, and bio-power planning permissions in the UK since 2006. We have broad expertise and experience across project development, planning and property and can manage site finding, planning applications (pre- and post-submission), land agreements (including variations), access routes, network connections and stakeholder consultation and management.
We are the perfect partner for new developments, asset life extensions, site re-powering and extensions. Working the construction management and operations teams, in particular, on asset life extensions, noise optimisation, re-powering and extensions.
As well as developing new projects, we can bring further benefits to existing assets through extending the operating life of projects under management, by securing site re-powering opportunities and through value-enhancing capacity additions. In the recent past we have:
- Extended the operating life of consented and operating wind farms through amendments to planning permissions and land leases
- Repowered two wind farms, effectively tripling energy generation in each case
- Built a solar farm adjacent to an operating wind farm, managing a grid connection interface
