Hydropower Consenting

Hydropower projects require various consents from different bodies:
Planning Permission from the Local Authority prior to building the project, Environmental Consents from the local Environmental licensing organising in order to operate the project, Grid Connection Permission to be able to link the system to the distribution network and Feed-in-Tariff Pre & Post Accreditation in order to be paid for the electricity produced.

Are you considering a hydropower project in the UK, Ireland or overseas?

Renewables First have considerable experience and full project capability, from initial feasibility study through to system design and installation.

The first step to develop any small or micro hydropower site is to conduct a full feasibility study.

Once complete, you will understand the site potential and be guided through the next steps to develop your project. You can read more about hydropower in our Hydro Learning Centre.
