About Us

Welcome to the Locogen Group, an award-winning renewable energy consultancy.

Andrew Lyle founded Locogen as a renewable energy consultancy in Edinburgh in 2009 and was quickly joined by former colleagues Ian McLean and Stuart Hamilton.  Since then, Locogen has grown into a multi-disciplinary renewable energy consultancy helping clients and partners to develop, build, and operate renewable and low carbon energy assets. Still headquartered in Edinburgh and with offices in Rennes, Locogen now operates across the UK and France, with additional investments in renewables projects in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Utility scale renewable energy consultancy

At the utility scale, we work with lenders and investors, renewable energy developers and portfolio owners.

Working on behalf of lenders, we provide investment-grade advisory services to carefully assess key technical, commercial, environmental and performance factors.

For renewable energy developers we offer a full suite of consultancy services across the complete project lifecycle. This can start at site-finding and assessment, through consenting services, grid technical advice, project design & procurementowner’s engineer and construction management services.

When a project becomes operational, we offer a full asset management service to wind farms and solar farms.

Energy transition

At the local energy level, we offer renewable energy consultancy to clients in the industrial & commercial, public sector and community sectors to help them reduce energy bills and meet their decarbonisation goals.

We utilise our deep technical understanding of the technologies and their implementation, often in a hybrid mix, to help these clients develop financially viable low carbon energy solutions to suit their business needs. This includes wind, solar PV, hydro, renewable heat, battery storage, hydrogen, local energy systems and EV charging. Where appropriate we can also offer financial investment to support projects. Our track record includes numerous joint venture projects with commercial and community partners.

We use proven technologies to create technically and commercially robust solutions that enable our clients to decarbonise their organisations, maximise returns on their investment and take control of their energy costs.

Renewable energy consultancy for emerging technologies and innovation

Renewable energy is an exciting and fast-moving sector. Necessity is the mother of invention, and as we work towards Net-Zero targets new technologies emerge and established technologies evolve.

Locogen’s Emerging Technologies team is dedicated to assessing these developments and helping clients understand their viability and how best they can be deployed in their businesses. Innovation is not an end in itself and we will not recommend any technology unless risks are fully appreciated and the solution is right for the client and their goals.

Properly planned, risk assessed and executed, however, emerging technology solutions can deliver considerable competitive advantage that positions your business at the forefront of market innovation.
