Brentwood - Green Belt

The green belt poses particular challenges for the implementation of large-scale renewable energy installations

Brentwood Renewables Assessment

We were commissioned by Brentwood Borough Council to report on renewable energy capacity within the borough. The results fed into the council's 2015 to 2030 local development plan.  

The study disaggregated energy consumption by major end use, and compared trends in carbon emissions to the national trajectory. The impact of key government policies was considered to produce forward predictions.  Potential sites for renewable energy installations were considered, and total achievable generation compared to consumption.  Finally, pathways to the implementation of specifics contained in the National Planning Policy Framework within the local development plan were considered.
