Grid scale renewable energy projects

Andrew can help landowners assess their options in respect of prospective renewable energy projects. Leasing or selling land to developers for energy projects, such as Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), Wind and Solar can offer several advantages for UK landowners.

Here are some reasons why farmers may consider leasing their land for energy projects

Diversification of Income

Leasing land for energy projects provides landowners with an additional source of income beyond traditional agricultural activities. This diversification can help mitigate risks associated with fluctuations in commodity prices and weather conditions.

Stable Revenue Stream

Energy projects, especially those involving Battery Energy Storage Systems, often involve long-term lease agreements, providing landowners with a stable and predictable revenue stream. This stability can contribute to better financial planning and management.

Utilization of Marginal or Unused Land

Landowners may have marginal or unused land that is not suitable for traditional farming or agricultural activities. Leasing such land for energy projects allows landowners to make productive use of these areas, maximizing the economic potential of their holdings.

Environmental Stewardship

Participation in renewable energy projects aligns with environmental stewardship goals. Battery Energy Storage Systems, as a component of renewable energy infrastructure, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and support sustainable energy practices.

Land Value Appreciation

Engaging in energy projects on their land can potentially increase its overall value. The presence of renewable energy infrastructure can make the land more attractive for investors and potentially enhance its resale value.

Grid Stability and Energy Security

Battery Energy Storage Systems contribute to grid stability by storing excess energy during periods of low demand and releasing it during peak hours. Landowners leasing land for BESS play a role in enhancing overall energy security and reliability in their area.

Fulfillment of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Engaging in renewable energy projects allows landowners to contribute to corporate social responsibility goals. It reflects positively on their public image, demonstrating a commitment to sustainable practices and environmental responsibility.
