Axis has played a key role in two of the projects that formed part of RWE Renewables’ successful bid in the latest UK CfD auction. RWE secured support for three onshore, four solar and two solar co-located with battery storage renewable energy projects.
Axis helped to secure consents for two of the onshore wind projects, Strathy Wood and Camster 2, authoring the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments that are always a key part of an onshore wind submission. In both cases, Axis successfully presented expert evidence at Appeal.
Said Director Jon Mason “Our key contributions to these consents for RWE demonstrate Axis’ strong expertise in understanding how to develop consent-able projects in sensitive Scottish landscape settings. It forms part of our continued ambition to help drive forward new UK clean energy infrastructure projects, supporting clients to deliver sustainable energy generation and storage schemes.”
Adds Anna Eberts, Project Development Manager at RWE Renewables, “The Strathy Wood and Camster 2 projects have both been aided along the way by expert landscape and visual consultants from Axis, a national planning and environmental consultancy, who have not only supported with the EIA reports but also in two separate public inquiries where their expert testimony aided greatly the success of these two projects.
Jon Mason and the rest of the team at Axis continue to work with RWE and will be integral in the next tranche of successful projects.” Axis plays key role in RWE Renewables’ successful bid in UK CfD auction
