Securing the Benefits of Wind Power Report CoverWe are pleased to be able to carry out specific pieces of research either on a 1-off basis or as part of a wider commission. Recent work includes the publication of a report entitled ‘Securing the Benefits of Wind Power in Scotland’, and we are currently carrying out socio economic research as part of environmental impact assessment.

DCL also has a close working relationship with SCENE, with whom we are currently collaborating on several exciting research opportunities aimed at improving community ownership opportunities in the renewables sector.
