This talk will be a guide to the consenting system in the UK for energy projects. It will talk about the different consents needed for renewables and other energy projects, how these interact with other laws such as environmental impact assessment and the hurdles that have to be jumped through to get a project through the consenting system. It will look at some case studies (local to Bristol and UK wide) to illustrate particular issues including judicial review.
The talk will be delivered by Edward Romaine. Edward is a solicitor specialising in planning law, has worked in-house for a renewables developer and now currently works for Temple Bright LLP.
The talk is part of a series of talks and films hosted by Bedminster Energy Group
