At PBA, we understand the key drivers for energy planning, helping to de-risk the planning process and achieving a financial uplift in the value of assets. We navigate technical and policy issues and offer comprehensive skills in evaluating effective solutions for new developments, as well as providing robust advice on the economic viability, funding, construction and operation of all energy technologies available.
Our services include:
Energy planning and strategies: we go beyond simply selecting technology, recognising that land developers need to mature their assets and maximise land values.
Energy generation and distribution: we undertake economic, environmental and social impact appraisals to inform development of energy assets in the built environment. We also undertake full planning and civil engineering design of generation and distribution projects.
Energy demand management: we provide specifications of better buildings with reduced energy demand through new approaches in demand side response.
Energy strategies: we develop low-carbon energy strategies in urban environments ensuring projects meet ever-changing policy and real-world practicalities.
Energy storage: we offer the design, planning and delivery of large battery storage projects.
Integration of infrastructure investment: we support the development of funding approaches that underpin utility infrastructure planning, helping to minimise infrastructure costs through better network management.
The energy services team includes scientists, engineers and geographers who jointly provide consultancy advice on project viability. The team’s in-depth understanding of the regulatory frameworks for both the energy and land development sectors allows the team to broker value for our clients.
