This ensures that our projects are viable through all stages of development, and that due diligence is taken throughout each aspect of the project lifecycle.
Working closely with our industry partner Roadnight Taylor, we establish grid capacity, before submitting a grid application and accepting any subsequent offers from the relevant Distribution Network Operator (DNO).
At Innova, we have an 80% connection application success rate for high voltage and extra high voltage schemes compared industry average of less than 20%.
Reviewing all land within a suitable radius from the point of our established connection, we undertake a range of surveys to select land for development and consult landowners to ascertain their interest in hosting a development on their land.
Simultaneously, our planning specialists review the local planning authority planning policy and development plans and undertake a site visit to narrow down the most appropriate site.
Once our development team have established whether any mitigation needs to be incorporated into the site design, we commission a wide range of surveys to assist with the final design and planning application.
At Innova, we believe that public engagement is imperative to a project. As such, we reach out to the LPA, local Parish, and Ward Councillors, to arrange public consultations to obtain valuable local information and feedback – which we look to incorporate wherever possible.
Once all studies have been undertaken and the site is designed, a planning application is created and submitted to the Local Planning Authority to decide if planning should be approved.
At the same time, our experienced project managers work closely with Innova’s legal counsel to obtain the rights to develop and operate on the selected site, and continue working with Innova’s grid specialists to progress with the grid agreement.
