For over 30 years, RES has built up the in-house expertise to develop, construct, and operate onshore and offshore wind farms worldwide
We have been involved in researching renewable technologies since the 1980s, and we built our first wind farm in Cornwall, UK, in 1992. Within 10 years we had completed the largest wind farm in the world at the time, in Texas. Today, with one of the largest project portfolios in the industry and an asset management portfolio exceeding 2 GW, we continue to provide partnerships and services to the world's fastest growing energy sector.
While our projects are designed to optimize power generation at the most competitive prices, we also seek to maintain our reputation for providing a sensitive and consultative approach to the environment and communities.
Our experts are with you every step of the way
Our in-house skills and experience are extensive, from commercial and legal to technical and engineering expertise. RES can safely oversee projects from development through planning and financing phases, to construction and operation.
Cornwall, UK, 1992
RES has built its extensive in-house experience on participation in UK offshore rounds 1, 2, and 3, and in the development of projects throughout Europe and the United States. This experience and expertise is available to asset owners worldwide.

RES' Shalini Ramanathan, VP Origination, was asked by Environment America to share her opinion that moving to 100% renewable energy is both necessary and achievable. The goal of the site is to highlight the range of leaders who have embraced a goal of "powering ourselves with clean renewable energy."
"I believe in a massive shift to green energy because it’s an essential part of tackling climate change – and because it can work." said Shalini Ramanathan.

Dounreay Trì Limited have been granted planning consent for the installation of a novel floating windfarm 9km off the Northern Coast of Scotland by the Scottish Government. The decision means that the facility will achieve the necessary Renewables Obligation accreditation by the end of the month to allow it to proceed, in what will be a major boost for Scotland.
The prototype facility, which will be constructed at Global Energy Group’s Nigg facility in the Highlands, will put Scotland at the forefront of developing this innovative technology which can be deployed in deep water rather than just in the shallower waters, such as those off the East Coast, as at present. The twin turbine project will be capable of generating 10MW of electricity, enough to power around 8,000 homes. By opening up the deeper waters off the North and West Coast of Scotland the new floating windfarms can make a significant contribution to helping Scotland meet its renewable energy targets.
Welcoming the granting of planning consent Jack Farnham, Senior Developer for RES & Consents Manager for Dounreay Tri, said, “We are delighted that Scottish Energy Minister, Paul Wheelhouse MSP, has granted planning permission for Dounreay Tri. It will be a major boost for Scotland as not only will this facility be constructed and maintained in Scotland but it opens up the possibility for Scotland in leading the world in this technology. This type of facility is potentially deployable in many more locations around the world than conventional offshore wind.”
Speaking on behalf of Hexicon, the parent company of the Dounreay Tri, which developed the technology, Marcus Thor, the Dounreay Trì Project Director, said, “It is fantastic news for Hexicon that the Dounreay Trì project has permission to proceed. We are grateful that Scotland is taking positive steps to lead in the development of this innovative technology. Hexicon is encouraged that this demonstration plant will lead to the deployment of many more floating windfarms around the world.”
The next steps for the project is to formally reach the final investment decision and then it needs to be constructed, installed and commissioned by 30 September 2018 under the terms of the Obligation Certification regime.

Notes to editors:
An impression of the Dounreay Trì facility is attached to this press release.
The wind farm will be deployed in Scottish Territorial Waters approximately 9km off Dounreay, Caithness in the summer of 2018. In order to proceed the application to Marine Scotland and Scottish Ministers must be processed by 31 March as the Renewable Obligation Certificate level required is only available to projects approved by that date.

RES’ SHALINI RAMANATHAN RANKED #25 and DR. CAROLYN HEEPS RANKED #48 IN WOMEN’S POWER LIST REPORT
Industry intelligence service, A Word About Wind, highlights achievements of Shalini Ramanathan and Dr. Carolyn Heeps, as two of the wind industry’s leading female figures
7 March 2017, London – Shalini Ramanathan, VP Origination, RES - Americas, has achieved the ranking of 25th and Dr. Carolyn Heeps, Development Strategy Director, RES Offshore, has achieved the ranking of 48th in the first Women’s Power List, published by wind industry intelligence service, A Word About Wind. The report aims to promote and celebrate the contribution of the female deal-makersand power-brokers shaping the wind industry’s development and the accolade recognises both Ms. Ramanathan and Dr. Heeps achievements in this regard.
The report is the first of its kind, with rankings compiled by the A Word About Wind editorial team in collaboration with an impartial senior advisory board. As such, Ms. Ramanathan’s position on the list testifies to her growing influence and that of her team on the sector, as evidenced by her having closed deals worth $2.5bn on wind, solar, and energy storage projects totalling 1.5GW, and negotiated off-take agreements with firms including General Motors, Google, Microsoft and Xcel Energy. Also noteworthy is that Dr. Heeps has been working in offshore wind since 2001 and is now based in Boston, where she is playing a key role in supporting the entries of RES and Dong Energy into the US offshore market. In 2015, RES won the rights to lease areas of Massachusetts and New Jersey for wind farms of 1GW, and has since assigned development rights to Dong.
“Despite women being significantly under-represented at senior management and board level within the wind industry, ranking the key female players within the sector was no easy task,” said Adam Barber, Publisher of A Word About Wind.
“In doing so, the report aims to highlight the achievements and exciting careers these women have carved out within the wind sector – and hopefully encourage more women to follow in their footsteps.”
The report profiles the top 100 women currently working in the wind industry, with each candidate having been nominated by her peers, and then assessed and ranked by an independent judging panel made up of senior industry representatives. In addition to the rankings, the Women’s Power List features in-depth and exclusive interviews with a number of those included.
“This new power list highlights the important role women are now playing in the wind industry. The UK is one of the leading performers in the rankings, which is an encouraging sign that our sector is becoming more inclusive,” said Emma Pinchbeck, RenewableUK’s Executive Director.
“We need to ensure that women across the country see wind energy as an open and attractive industry to work in. This means promoting renewable skills and opportunities to a new generation of women entering the workforce.”
