As the adverse effects of climate change have become more evident and ubiquitous, the pressure to source energy from renewable sources has increased exponentially on a global scale. Significant investment is being made in the sector both in the UK and worldwide. This investment has mostly been in wind, solar photovoltaics (PV) and hydro-generation technologies with the cost of energy for wind generation at levels more economically viable than fossil fuels.

RSK has been involved in the renewable/sustainable energy sector for 20 years, since the emergence of offshore and onshore wind energy generation in the late 1990s. We now actively support developments and technologies as diverse as onshore and offshore wind generation, hydro generation, energy storage/ fuelling (battery, cryobattery and hydrogen), electric vehicle charging facilities, geothermal, ground source and water source heat generation and district heat networks.

Combining decades of expertise

As a global consultancy of more than 3500 staff, we offer bespoke and end-to-end solutions for a diverse client base. We have supported, and continue to support, such companies as AES, Scottish Power Renewables, Orsted, Innogy, ESB, Vattenfall, E.ON, EDF, Coriolis Energy, REG, British Solar Renewables, Highview and Fastned. While we have significant experience of supporting commercial-scale generation, we have also led consultancy support for numerous smaller landholding-scale generation projects.

RSK has a whole life appreciation of renewable energy assets from finding sites on behalf of clients and securing and/or negotiating land options through to securing consents, optimising design (including co-locating technologies), supporting construction and operational environmental maintenance. RSK is also actively involved in extending the operational life of assets and repowering proposals. Our mapping and GIS capability means we can also provide a web-based interactive GIS viewer, so up-to-date data are used by the project team. Our inspection services include unmanned aerial vehicles, surveying (lidar) and rope access.

Understanding the sector

RSK has several employees with vast experience of working as direct employees of renewable energy developers, such as large utility developers through to the SME scale. This provides our team with a holistic appreciation of the pressures on key operators in the sector and commercial pressures that must be balanced alongside all other considerations, including environmental issues. This insight and experience are the impetuses to providing cost-effective solutions for our clients.

Transmission and distribution

RSK has considerable experience supporting energy transmission and distribution projects linked to generation development. Whether working on behalf of transmission operators, such as Scottish Power Energy Networks and National Grid or directly for energy generation developers, we have accrued vast experience in routeing and siting assets, landowner negotiations, gaining consents under the development consent order, Section 36 and Town and Country Planning Association regimes, and supporting the construction of generating asset grid connections. Appreciation of the commercial, procedural and time pressures associated with grid connections provides us with a thorough understanding of the key issues that influence the development process.
