Green Highland Renewables (GHR) specialises in the development of small scale hydro electric schemes. Since 2007, GHR has worked on a wide range of run of river schemes at every phase of the development process, from initial concept through to consent, construction and operation, as well as providing remedial works and scheme optimisation. The company’s primary focus is to provide advice and solutions to landowners through the entire development of a hydro power project from an initial idea through to commissioning and generation.
GHR has a 100% success rate in gaining planning consent for hydro schemes, consenting nearly 10 MW of hydro capacity in Scotland to date (January 2013). GHR has over 20MW under development within its current portfolio of schemes, which includes schemes under development with the Forestry Commission Scotland. Further information on our work with the Forestry Commission is available here.
Green Highland Renewables is a Scottish company with offices in Perth and Dingwall.
Scotland has been successfully utilising run of river hydropower for over one hundred years and with its mountainous terrain, lochs and rivers and a high average rainfall is an ideal location for this technology. There are still many sites in the Scotland that could be suitable for the development of small hydro electric schemes. Hydro electric schemes are a source of renewable energy that can be operated economically for many years. The GHR development process is structured to manage the risks and challenges of hydro development. Hydro construction in upland burns should be financially viable, environmentally responsible and designed appropriately so that construction is practical and manageable.
