Renewable Energy

Renewable energy technologies range from solar power, wind power, hydroelectricity to biomass and biofuels.

The renewable energy sector in Scotland has grown significantly over the last decade.  In 2015, 59.4% of gross electricity consumption was met by renewable sources in Scotland and as such the the transformational change to a low carbon economy will continue to be a national objective for the foreseeable future.  

MFA has experience in the renewables sector and can offer planning support, advice and guidance on a range of projects from single wind turbines to anaerobic digestion (AD) plants.  We have helped clients secure planning permission for a range of turbines and AD plants.  Most recently, we obtained planning permission for an AD plant in Dumfries and Galloway using existing by-products (manure/slurry) produced on the dairy farm to produce 3.5 million m³ of gas per annum.
