Can UK planning regulation meet the renewable energy challenge?

  • United Kingdom
  • Energy and infrastructure - Clean energy


The potential adoption of renewable energy as a key part of the recovery from the Coronavirus crisis means that more opportunities are potentially coming up.

Peter Nesbit, a Partner in our UK Planning and Infrastructure Consenting Team has recorded a podcast with Kings Chambers which discusses repowering existing schemes, gaining community support, what local plans need to do on renewables, and the role of NSIPs.

Philip Robson chairs the podcast panel and Giles Cannock QC, Rebecca Williams (Head of Policy and Regulation, RenewableUK) and Chris Calvert (Executive Director Planning, Pegasus Group) join Peter as panellists.
