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 site 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 the grid connection interface
