Renewable Energy

The energy sector is rapidly expanding to meet the increasing demand for renewable energy generation. Onshore and offshore wind farms, solar farms and wave and tidal solutions all require environmental and ecological impact assessments.

Helping to deliver net zero carbon

As the drive towards net zero carbon gathers pace, the demand for renewable energy generation is only going to increase. Despite its otherwise green credentials, renewable energy developments are not without their own environmental impacts. Our dedicated team of environmental, carbon and ecology experts can provide support and guidance to ensure your development is an exemplar project. 

Thomson has advised on over 2.5GW of renewable energy production projects. We can work with you on any scale project to effectively manage all aspects of environmental impact and biodiversity.

A ‘one-stop shop’ for all your environmental needs

From initial site survey and investigation, design development and mitigation, through to full EIA and support through the planning process (including Development Consent Orders), we bring together bespoke teams of environmental experts that understand the issues specific to your project and development site. We advise on embedded mitigation to ‘design out’ environmental impacts, opportunities for environmental enhancement and the benefits of longer term environmental monitoring. 

We can also support your communications teams on public consultation and stakeholder engagement. 

Environmental enhancement and long-term monitoring

Your development may require a long-term commitment to maintaining and enhancing biodiversity. Our specialists work with you throughout the project lifecycle to identify and deliver all your regulatory responsibilities. We can undertake site habitat maintenance and species monitoring. Our data management systems will facilitate programming and reporting, which can also be leveraged as an aspect of sustainability reporting. We are specialists in all ecosystems and conduct marine, freshwater and terrestrial surveys.
