Amy provides advice to clients throughout the development of a project, often from the starting point of agricultural-use land through to commercial operation, such as the commissioning of a wind farm or construction of a new town settlement.
Amy’s experience in renewable energy developments ranges from providing advice for small scale hydro developments through to 450MW+ onshore wind developments and land corridors for 1.5GW+ offshore wind developments.
