RPS has been involved in the renewables industry in Ireland and the UK for the last 20 years and has
developed a wide ranging capability and expertise in the following areas:
Planning (conventional and strategic infrastructure)
Strategic environmental assessment (SEA) & environmental impact assessment (EIA)
Resource assessment & project appraisal for on and offshore wind, solar, wave, tidal and CHP / biomass
Technical & environmental due diligence of existing portfolios
Innovation & sustainability
Geotechnical & hydrogeological studies and risk assessments
Offshore geomorphological & modelling studies
Onshore & offshore wind turbine foundation design
Mechanical & electrical design
Grid connection, licensing & consents
Project management, risk management & contract delivery
Project & stakeholder communications
Health & safety
We have an understanding of the marketplace and involvement in all aspects of planning and development. RPS brings a unique insight to the requirements for producing fundable, buildable designs through our integrated team of planners, engineers, scientists and communications experts.
RPS has been successfully delivering planning permissions and consents for onshore wind energy projects across the UK and Ireland for over 10 years. We have undertaken detailed international studies on offshore renewables for the European Commission (BEAGINS study) and the Governments of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland (ISLES study) which are laying the foundations for future large scale deployment in Western European waters.
We have advised on national energy policy and economics including the possible conversion to bioenergy from agricultural residues, growth in biodiesel crops and other renewable fuels.
