Commercial renewable energy development and the historic environment - 19 May, 1300-1400 (BST)
This webinar is aimed at planning officers, local and national heritage professionals, planning consultants, those in the renewable energy industry and other interested parties. It will explore the potential impacts on the historic environment of commercial renewable energy proposals, which could occupy large areas of land or sea. It is informed by a new Historic England Advice Note on Commercial Renewable Energy Development and the Historic Environment published in February 2021. Technologies covered by the Advice Note include large-scale development proposals for wind power, solar photovoltaics (PV) and biomass and energy from waste (EfW). This webinar will introduce basic principles and explore key issues with reference to relevant case studies.
