Renewables First’s modular windpower feasibility study follows a logical sequence where each stage builds on the previous stages. This allows you to investigate the highest-risk items first for the minimum cost (you can stop at any time in the process if the modular report determines a show stopper), rather than committing to a whole feasibility report which may conclude that the site has no developmental potential.
Each module is explained in brief below and in more detail by following the links. They all rely on successful completion of our Wind Site Self Assessment.
This tool takes approximately 20 minutes, going through the initial basic checks to see if your site might be suitable for a wind turbine.
The first early stage expert assessment to carry out a quick initial viability check for your site before committing to commissioning a detailed feasibility study.
Examines physical constraints, turbine location followed by an a planning policy risk review and an initial grid capacity assessment.
A detailed expert assessment of a wide range of aspects technical, planning and financial aspects of the development, including a site visit and summary of key project risks.
Grid connection application and other non standard options that can be used to mitigate wind turbine project risk or overcome objections.
Want to install a wind turbine?
If you are in the UK then take our Wind Site Self-Assessment - Step 1 of our modular Windpower Feasibility Study. It takes about 20 minutes to work through the basic checks to see if your site might be suitable, including:
- Estimating wind speed
- Checking proximity of nearby properties
- Checking site access and approach roads
- Investigating connection with the grid
