Successive UK Governments have struggled to balance our competing energy priorities: security, sustainability and affordability. The UK’s Net-Zero commitment, under The Climate Change Act 2008, has made the need for a coherent energy policy all the more critical. The UK’s energy trilemma can only be addressed with the support of the private sector. Invicta works to connect private companies and national policymakers, helping to unlock political and financial support for green developments.
We have expertise in supporting emerging technologies, including floating offshore wind, wave, and tidal power. In addition, we have a strong track record of working with more established technologies such as onshore and fixed offshore wind. Invicta works with clients throughout the UK to guide the planning application process at both local and national levels. We also create opportunities to engage with the Government on energy policy development, including engagement to inform the green recovery and climate change agenda.
Since its inception, Invicta has supported some of the most established Commercial Property developers in the UK. By engaging with local political stakeholders and communities, we have delivered major projects in the most challenging of environments.
