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 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."
"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."
"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."
"We appointed DeVono because we knew they would care and take the trouble to understand our business, our objectives and help us deliver on our commitment to our clients and our people. The outcome of the process has been entirely positive and surpassed all of our expectations. We would always choose to work with DeVono."
"We were very satisfied with the service provided. You helped us find the perfect office to meet our needs and were prompt and effective in negotiating the deal on our behalf."
