Property developers should be able to choose which power generation scheme is suitable for their developments, the British Property Federation (BPF) has said.
The announcement follows a report, which questions the government’s approach to renewable energy.
Michael Chambers, director for planning and development, said: "The best way of ensuring developments use renewable energy is to find the most sustainable solution for each site."
The study by environmental consultancy Encraft, has claimed wind turbines are far less efficient than previously thought, leading the BPF to question current eco-plans.
Tory MP Michael Fallon announced the Planning and Energy Bill yesterday, which proposed that local authorities set on-site targets for new developments.
Following the government’s intention to develop more nuclear power plants, debate has increased as to how green energy can be provided.
Simple measures like turning off lights and computers in commercial lettings can cut energy costs.
"We really appreciated your help. We got the result we wanted at a speed we could never have achieved ourselves and we're very pleased that we engaged you."
"Our second time using DeVono and again I was very impressed with the team - friendly, efficient and extremely commercial and honest. They understood the brief and worked hard to deliver the right property for our needs. In what was an unfamiliar area to me, they provided guidance on key issues and negotiated very good terms, highly recommendable."
"I have worked with DeVono for many years. I value their approach – always looking at the big picture, not just the deal. They consider the real estate challenges we face through our eyes, understanding not just the real estate reporting requirements but also the complexity of our organisation’s structure and stakeholders. I’m always very happy to work with the team and value their support."
"We’ve worked with DeVono for several years through various stages of our evolution. We’ve had to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head on including adjusting our real estate strategy. To understand our options, and how best to progress we turned once again to DeVono. They were always there, ready to guide us to ensure we got the best outcome for the business."
"We have used DeVono as our property advisers for a number of years. Their greatest strengths lie in their ability to understand quickly what is required and to grasp all the relevant issues. They regularly ‘think outside the box’ and offer creative solutions to complex problems. We have no hesitation in recommending them."
