RES has been at the forefront of the renewable energy sector since the early 1980s. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the largest independent renewable energy developers in the UK and Ireland.
RES has been at the forefront of the renewable energy sector in the UK and Ireland since the early 1980s. We developed the UK’s second ever wind farm, in 1992 at Carland Cross in Cornwall – and since then, we’ve grown to become one of the largest independent renewable energy companies in the UK and Ireland. We currently have more than 1,000 MW (megawatts) of renewable energy projects constructed, under construction or at advanced planning stages.
We’re involved in a range of renewable energy technologies, including onshore wind, solar, offshore wind, wave and tidal, as well as enabling technologies such as energy storage and demand side management. Across all of these, our reputation for quality and reliability is second to none.
Renewable energy portfolio
We aim to be at the leading edge of the transition to a low-carbon economy across the UK and Ireland by generating renewable energy and supporting the technology that creates it.
We’ve developed and built over 40 wind and solar farms, and operate over 20 assets for a range of clients. We also provide development, engineering, construction, and asset operation and maintenance services for utility-scale onshore and offshore wind, solar, and energy storage installations.
Our first UK solar farm opened in 2014, and we have a portfolio of consented solar projects. We have the resources and project management capabilities needed to develop, construct, and operate solar farms for large-scale power generation connected to the grid, and for on-site commercial solar installations for industry.
developed and built
operated for a range of investors
We’re also pioneers in utility scale energy storage that provide a multitude of grid services. Our experience in operating centralized renewable energy projects and understanding network requirements means we can integrate and operate energy storage schemes efficiently.
Exploring different ways to increase energy efficiency, we’ve invested in a smart grid company, to offer demand side management. Our new service optimizes and shifts energy consumption by controlling millions of devices, minimizing energy costs and increasing revenues.
Shift energy, earn revenue
Economic, safe, rapid & reliable
Wherever we work, we talk to local people about what our projects mean to them, and how they can bring tangible benefits to their communities.
We do this through public meetings, information brochures, site visits, and direct contact with residents, charities and schools. And, where possible, we use local businesses and suppliers on our projects.
We also support community charity initiatives with funds from wind farm revenues.
Landowners who choose RES as a partner benefit from:

RES has been awarded a five year contract to provide O&M services to offshore transmission assets owned by Blue Transmission Walney 1 Ltd. In addition to providing the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance of the equipment, the contract will see RES apply its expertise in asset and site management, logistics, subsea surveys, and control centre services.
A spokesman for BTW1L, said:
“Following a competitive bidding process RES was selected due to their open and collaborative approach, as well as its deep understanding of engineering, technical and operational matters in the offshore wind industry.”
Filippo Di Salle, RES AO&M General Manager, said:
“Winning our first long term maintenance contract on an operating offshore wind farm is a great achievement for RES. We’ve been able to use our 10 years expertise in the operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms to great effect in successfully winning this project.”

RES (Renewable Energy Systems) has successfully completed its first UK-based industrial-scale battery storage facility at a 1.5MW solar park south of Glastonbury, in Somerset.RES has delivered the battery energy storage system (BESS) under an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for Western Power Distribution (WPD) as part of a project to explore the provision of ancillary services to a distribution network operator from an embedded battery energy storage system.
A leading global renewable energy company, RES has pioneered energy storage projects in the US and Canada and is now delivering its energy storage expertise at projects across the UK.The 310kVA/668kWh battery storage system RES has delivered for WPD, at a British Solar Renewables (BSR) solar park, is one of the first such projects to be built under a fully wrapped EPC contract in Europe. The combined solar-storage project is connected to WPD’s South West 11kV network, and the BESS will be operated using RESolve, RES’ storage control and dispatch system that will provide 24/7 management of the battery’s operation.
The completion of RES’ first energy storage project in UK solidifies RES’ leadership in the global energy storage sector, as reported in Navigant Research's Leaderboard Report and takes RES’ total contracted energy storage portfolio to 143.6MW / 92MWh, alongside more than 200MW in development.
Tim French, RES’ Head of Projects for New Technologies, said: “Completing our first battery storage facility in UK marks an important milestone for RES.We’ve been able to use our global energy storage expertise to great effect in successfully designing and building this project for WPD and delivering it ahead of schedule.
“We recognise the significant potential energy storage brings through increasing the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of grid operations without the need for public or Government subsidy. RES is very well placed at the forefront of the rapidly expanding UK storage market, which will play a vital role in the UK’s transition to a low carbon future at least cost to consumers.”
Jenny Woodruff, Innovation and Low Carbon Engineer for WPD, said: “I’m delighted to see the battery energised and we’ve already seen encouraging signs of the battery’s capabilities during commissioning tests.The Solar Storage project will discover the effectiveness and the practical issues around using the battery to provide a range of services. This will help us determine where battery technology can reduce network investment costs, keeping bills down for customers.”

Gruig Wind Farm, located near Corkey, Co Antrim has just provided an annual financial contribution towards three local community groups. The wind farm managed by local renewable energy company, RES, on behalf of wind farm owners Glennmont Partners, supports three local groups: Cloughmills Community Action Team, St Anne’s Support Group (Corkey) and the Loughgiel Community Association.
Since commencing operations in 2010, the wind farm has donated over £74,000 to the local community. The fund has provided a number of activities and services within the local area, including contributing towards the Old Mill community allotment project in Cloughmills. The facility provides a safe and friendly environment for members of the local community to come together and enjoy their passion for garden and all things horticultural. From growing and preparing plants for hanging baskets, to raising hens, the allotments have grown from strength to strength in recent years.
St Anne’s Support Group uses their proportion of the Fund to provide additional support to St Anne’s Primary School, Corkey, Northern Ireland. The Fund has provided additional teaching resources and assisted in extracurricular activities throughout the year, such as school trips.
Loughgiel Development Association continues to use their Gruig Wind Farm financial contribution towards ongoing running costs within the Millennium Centre and maintaining the valuable services which it has been providing the community in recent times, such as the playgroup service that enables parents to return to work.
Angela O’Hagan, The Millennium Centre Manager, stated, “The funding that we receive from Gruig Wind Farm is a great lifeline to us. It allows us to maintain the services for the community that we have established over the years. As there are no restrictions on how it can be used, we are also able to use some of the money to cover insurance and running costs that we just wouldn’t be able to get funding for anywhere else”.
Gruig Wind Farm, Community Relations Manager, Victoria Graham continues, “It is great to see and hear first-hand the difference that the Community Benefit Fund is making to local groups. We have close links with the local villages and hope to continue building on relationships over the coming years through RES’ continued management and operations of Gruig Wind Farm.
