Welcome to Banks Renewables

Supporting the UK's transition to net zero

Banks Renewables is part of the Banks Group, a family firm founded in 1976, based in Durham, Leeds and Hamilton.  Our development team works with landowners to take renewable and flexible energy projects including onshore wind, solar and battery storage projects from inception to completion, handling all aspects of the planning and delivery process. Development with care is at the heart of everything we do and we develop all our sites in close consultation with the local community.

  • Banks Renewables was incorporated in 2006
  • Banks Renewables currently own and operate 223MW of renewable energy generation
  • Banks Renewables has over planning permission for 200MW, with further 347MW in the planning system
  • Banks Renewables has achieved a reduction of 620,000 tonnes of CO2 from operational projects to date
  • The 547MW we have in various stages of the planning and build out process is enough to provide electricity for around 400,000 homes or a city larger than Leeds

Banks Renewables has developed 14 onshore wind farms

We have secured planning permission for 14 windfarms and currently operate ten onshore wind farms across Scotland and the north of England with a combined installed generation capacity of 223MW.  We have also obtained planning permission for two solar arrays and are developing other renewable and flexible energy projects throughout the UK.  We are members of RenewableUK, Scottish Renewables and the Independent Renewable Energy Generators Group (IREGG).



We are developing more large scale solar farms to support the UK's transition to Net Zero

We would like to hear from you if you have any land with potential for solar or onshore wind developments.  Please contact us.

Our Connect2Renewables initiative seeks to maximise the social and economic benefit of renewables developments to the local area. For more information about Connect2Rewables please go to: http://www.banksgroup.co.uk/banks-group/banks-renewables/connect2renewables/

Each year since 2011 Banks Renewables has been displacing more green house gas emissions from the UK's power generation sector supporting the transition to Net Zero.
