With climate change being heavily debated, there are now significant EU and central government legislation which directly encourages the investment in low carbon energy generation infrastructure. Application of these technologies varies in investment size, ranging from centralised power plants, through to localised development scale infrastructure.
To support the development of low carbon energy ventures, Davis Langdon offer solutions to suit the specific needs of developers, land owners, investors and stakeholders. Davis Langdon will ensure a bespoke service offering to exceed the expectations of clients in the Energy sector.
The UK aims to meet its targets by generating more than 30% of our electricity from renewables, up from about 5.5% in 2009. In addition to the renewable obligations, the UK also faces increasing pressure from the EU landfill directive where by 2020 the biodegradable waste landfilled must be reduced to 35% of that produced in 1995.
The main types of technologies that will be employed include:
- Biomass (including co-firing)
- Energy from Waste (including waste processing)
- Anaerobic Digestion
- Combined Heat & Power (CHP) and Combined Cooling Heat & Power (CCHP)
along with other renewable energy technologies that include wind, solar, hydro, wave and tidal. These are discussed on another page.
Davis Langdon understand the issues presented in low carbon energy technologies, and are able to offer value adding advice to all our clients to maximise on the opportunities in the sector.
