One of the first questions you may ask when considering using your land for a renewables project is – why choose ScottishPower Renewables?
SPR has over 20 years’ experience in developing, building and operating renewable energy. We have developed a strong record of delivering renewable projects, and we strive to maintain our positive reputation as the leading development choice in the industry.
We have an extensive in-house resource with experts across a variety of fields from energy yield, ecology, planning, grid connectivity, engineering, construction and asset operation. This enables us to provide a unique end-to-end service from initial feasibility to the operation of the completed site which allows us to function as a full-service provider who develop, deliver and operate projects.
SPR with the backing of our parent company, Iberdrola, is uniquely positioned to sustainably secure funding and a route to market for our projects, avoiding exposure to banks or third-party funding providers to secure Financial Investment Decisions. This allows us to drive projects forward – we are not in the business of ‘land banking’.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business, and we focus on both community and the environment in all our projects. We are a 100% green developer, continuously pioneering ecological aspects of our projects and have shared £58m in community benefit funding to date.
Managing Director Onshore (UK & Ireland), ScottishPower Renewables
"By working in close partnership with our landowners every step of the way from initial site feasibility and development, into decades of operation, we’ve been able to build strong, long-lasting relationships. Along with the local communities around our developments, our land partners are at the heart of what we do. We’re really proud that we’ve not only been able to work together to increase renewable energy generation across the country, but that we’ve also been able to help landowners diversify, unlock new income opportunities, and find sustainable solutions to suit every bespoke site."
