Energy Infrastructure

Renplan specialise in planning applications for energy projects such as large ground mounted Solar PV installations, Battery Storage Energy System (BESS) installations and wind farms.

Ben Lewis established Renewables Planning consultancy Renplan Ltd in March 2014 following directorship positions as a renewable energy planning specialist at other planning consultancies.

Now entering its 10th year of business, the company has grown and diversified into providing planning services for battery storage technologies as well as ground mounted solar PV installations. With a large portfolio of projects, all Solar PV projects of which have been consented, the company continues to build its reputation as a leading planning consultancy within the industry.

Renplan can navigate the complexities of the English, Welsh and Scottish planning systems as well as the consenting systems for nationally significant infrastructure projects. Most notably, Renplan is now an industry leading consultancy for the management of applications through NSIP and DNS.

The company’s approach to handling the delivery of its client’s aspirations is to establish early proactive engagement with decision makers, communities and consultees and to coordinate a team of professionals to ensure a client’s proposal is professionally presented and represented to boost the prospects of securing consent.

We work closely with a range of specialist consultants when required on more complex proposals covering subject matters such as:

  • transport
  • ecology
  • landscape
  • structural surveying
  • quantity surveying
  • land contamination
  • flood risk
  • noise
  • radar
  • telecommunications
  • land and soils
  • sustainability assessments
  • archaeology
  • heritage
  • air quality

We specialise in formulating environmental reports and coordinate environmental impact assessments as part of providing a comprehensive planning application package.
