From new nuclear and unconventional gas to solar and wind farms. We have worked across the UK to help create new energy infrastructure. Out team has experience supporting projects for new gas and electricity generation, storage and energy distribution. With specific experience of NSIPs and the Planning Act 2008 we have devised and implemented engagement and consultation programmes to work with communities potentially hosting new infrastructure development.
Projects executives have handled include: solar projects in Wiltshire, East Sussex, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Suffolk; tidal energy on the Severn Estuary; emerging waste to energy plants at Pinkham Way and Edmonton for the North London Waste Authority; and new nuclear at Hinkley Point.
Chelgate was appointed to handle communications for North London Waste Authority (NLWA) for the procurement of one, possibly two, waste to energy plants in north London.
Chelgate was retained to undertake local community engagement for a 12MW solar park on agricultural land just outside the village of Crewkerne. We implemented a programme of local engagement with residents and councillors resulting in a successful planning application and consent.
For several years, Chelgate has been promoting shale exploration and fracking in Europe and the Middle East on behalf of Texas-based Breitling Energy Corporation. This has involved a comprehensive range of engagement including political (councils, UK government and EU), online, roadshows and media relations.
