We apply this in-depth knowledge at every stage of the project, offering a full lifecycle service which can originate, develop and manage projects, utilising our experience of what we have seen works well and avoiding what has not.
For operational plants we offer an unrivalled technical asset management service in addition to providing diligent advice to investors looking to transact renewable energy projects.
Amberside originate and develop utility solar and energy storage projects from origination to ‘ready to build’with a grid-led approach. We have developed high accuracy algorithms which predict where new renewable energy or energy storage schemes could connect to the grid. Our unique process has been proven by securing more than 1.3GW of viable grid offers for projects since 2018. Our site selection work marries streamlined data analysis with experienced human input to identify land which we believe have strong potential to be granted planning permission. The success of the portfolio is as critical as the success of the project and so we continually manage overall targets, with contingency plans to accommodate any potential changes. Our development work is based on partnerships and engagement: with landowners, consultants, stakeholders and investors.
