Instinctif Partners Public Policy


How can we help deliver renewable energy across the nation?

Lightsource is Europe’s leading solar energy company, operating the largest portfolio of solar PV projects in the region of just over 1 Gigawatt. Lightsource faces a wide variety of challenges when seeking planning permission for ground mounted solar farms from a range of stakeholders.

We created and delivered a number of community and political engagement strategies for Lightsource to support its planning application projects.

All of the projects we have worked with Lightsource on have resulted in planning consent. In December 2014, Lightsource received planning permission for 23 new sites totalling more than 100MW of new capacity.
