Energy strategy

Renewable technology options

"I really want to do something with renewable energy but I don't know where to start and I don't want to get ripped off". This is a sentiment frequently expressed by our clients looking for an overview of their renewable technology options. Redcotec engineers are highly experienced at assessing sites for multiple technologies and can quickly identify the best options.

Our clients instinctively know that there is little point in asking a car dealer if you need a new car or an estate agent if you should buy a house. Making the correct choices on the most suitable renewable energy technology is an area where independent and impartial advice can prove invaluable.

However, technology selection can be complex due to the differing pros and cons of the equipment available and the unique factors for your site. Our experience and independent status mean we can recommend strategies that match your targets not ours – we are never biased by a need make equipment sales.

We will devise a renewable energy strategy that can be successfully implemented with low risk to provide maximum financial returns. Redcotec often gets involved early with a multi-technology feasibility study as clients begin to explore and develop their renewable technology strategy. However, we are also here to provide further on-going support as necessary.

Our services range from completing initial system designs and obtaining planning or grid connection permissions through to providing project management services for final equipment installation.
