Panoramic solar farm

Solar energy

ON THIS PAGE
Contact us

As energy consumption continues to increase, there is growing demand from across our communities, industries and governments, to decarbonise global economies. And solar, as a preferred mainstream energy source for many markets, is playing a major role.

But within this context of high demand and rapid growth, solar farm developers face the challenge of finding and acquiring suitable space (on- and offshore), navigating complex legislative and planning pathways, environmental permitting requirements and community expectations.

With technical experience across a range of large-scale energy projects including onshore and offshore wind and solar, hydrogen, pumped hydro and more, RPS provides sustainable solutions delivered in complex terrestrial and marine environments.

Strategy and commercial advisory

How we help  

RPS can help you develop your business case and project scope to align with local regulatory frameworks, market and financial feasibility conditions and preferred models of funding and delivery. We offer the advice and guidance you need to define what success looks like for your solar project and develop a clear plan for achieving your goals. 

Due diligence

How we help  

Offering specialist technical, operational and commercial due diligence services and advice, we support strategic infrastructure investment in solar. 

Our consultants focus on key investor concerns including future investment requirements and plans (Capex), expected future operating costs (Opex) and potential areas of operational improvement. Using this information and analysis, we build compelling business cases and provide evidence-based advice to guide renewable energy investment and enhancing performance. 

Planning, environmental permitting and compliance

How we help  

RPS is a leading provider of environmental planning, impact assessment, regulatory engagement and compliance support. We support and guide clients to navigate complex environmental approval pathways to help them achieve sustainability and resilience through solar projects. Our consultants have extensive experience in approval processes and regulatory regimes across many markets, and we specialise in renewable energy projects delivered in environmentally sensitive locations. 

MetOcean services

How we help 

RPS is in the business of big environmental data. We work with clients across energy and other industries to measure, monitor and understand environmental patterns (wind, wave, tides and more), with a focus on diverse and extreme environments. Using state-of-the-art technologies such as floating LiDAR, directional wave buoys, terrestrial scanning, aerial and UAV survey, we provide critical information for renewable project site selection, design and performance analysis. 

Environmental impact assessment

How we help  

From ecological assessment to the negotiation of offsets and conditions, we scope and manage complex technical studies and prepare environmental assessment documentation to support the successful development of solar projects. Working collaboratively with project owners, regulators and the community, we develop the evidence needed to develop practical environmental mitigation and management strategies for solar projects. Our expertise includes terrestrial and marine ecologycontaminationflood management and site hydrology and more. 

Visual impact assessment

How we help  

We use smart technologies to assess the impact of solar development options and shape design outcomes that integrate projects appropriately with existing built form and natural features. Our visual impact specialists can assist you to manage key community concerns about the visual impact of solar development proposals. 

Spatial data acquisition, analysis and visualisation

How we help  

Using state-of-the-art surveying and mapping technologies, we help solar project engineers, designers and contractors to understand their operational environment, design with confidence, and deliver solar projects on time and on budget. From aerial LiDAR mapping that offers detailed information about site topography, to the ongoing condition assessment of assets to support efficient operations and asset maintenance, we can customise a spatial data solution to fit your project requirements. 

Site investigation and survey

How we help  

Site selection and characterisation for solar projects requires an ideal balance to be struck between existing environments and land/ocean uses, energy potential, geotechnical conditions, installation and maintenance considerations, and the ease of connection to transmission infrastructure. Through survey, metocean and geotechnical investigation, route selection and site planning, we can help you achieve confidence in your assets’ location while defining your engineering design criteria, optimising yield, and accommodating environmental and operational constraints. 

Communications and stakeholder engagement

How we help 

Energy projects are by nature intensely ‘public’ and their success hinges on public trust and a shared understanding of positive project intent and post-completion benefits.  RPS can help you maintain public support for your projects long before physical construction work begins through meaningful engagement with project stakeholders and end-users. We can advise and assist with everything from project branding and communications strategy, to community engagement activities, graphic design, public relations and more. 

Data management and visualisation

How we help  

Combining data science capabilities with broader technical expertise spanning economics, communications, investment advisory and more, RPS can help you uncover insights and communicate critical information clearly and simply. We interrogate and analyse spatial data and can develop intuitive dashboards and data simulations to help you compare performance variables for your solar asset such as generation capacity and yield. 

Program and project management

How we help  

RPS supports your team to deliver projects on time and on budget while managing risk. From tendering and contractor engagement, to program management and contract administration, we can assist you to select the consultants and contractors that best suit your project’s location and needs.
