Richard, who recently became a Partner, said, “Reducing CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions has been an aim of the world’s governments for over a decade. This global focus on tackling climate change along with depleting levels of our core energy reserves has given rise to a new generation of environmentally friendly and renewable energy solutions. These developments need land so there are huge opportunities for local land owners. With our experience of solar, wind, hydro and anaerobic digestion installations our new, dedicated energy team can give clients the specialist advice they need.”
