Last Chance: Opportunities on Forestry Estate

Those wishing to investigate development of  Wind, Photovoltaic (PV) or Geothermal energy generation on the NFE should complete a Notification of Interest (NoI) form, and return it to by 13.00hrs on Friday 14th March 2014.

The deadline for receipt of Notification of Interest forms for Hydro has been extended to 17:00 on Monday 24th March 2014.

We will share a report indicating potential sites for hydro development on Tuesday 18th March. Click here to be notified when this list is published.

We hope this will help community groups identify possible hydro sites in their area.


Information on the Residual Offering

Sites available for investigation are shown on the Map Viewer. There are different areas available for hydro and wind, but those interested in PV or geothermal may choose from either hydro or wind maps.

Approaches from community organisations will be considered under existing arrangements, which include the possibility of leasing suitable sites under the National Forest Land Scheme.




Deadline for hydro now 17:00 on Monday 24th March 2014.
