Industry-leading peat guidance for wind farm applications co-authored by Natural Power


Natural Power has co-authored Carbon-rich soils, deep peat and priority peatland habitat: expert views on project level assessment document with Marcus Trinick QC, Dr Andy Mills at East Point Geo and Dr Kate Massey of Alba Ecology.

As stated in the forward, the discussion document “brings together the collective knowledge of an experienced group of industry professionals working across the peatland EIA topics. It is intended to summarise the industry’s current approach to and understanding of peat habitat, peat soil and carbon assessment in support of wind farm applications. It raises questions where there appear to be ambiguities or inconsistencies in the way stakeholders and regulators engage with applicants during the EIA process. The intention is for this document to stimulate discussion and support industry and stakeholders/regulators in finding common ground in addressing the climate emergency through responsible development in Scotland.”
