RES - a strong track record in Scotland

RES is the world's leading independent renewable energy developers with operations across Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. RES grew out of Sir Robert McAlpine, a British family-owned firm with over 140 years experience in construction and engineering with a proud history in Scotland stretching from the Glenfinnan Viaduct in the Highlands to the Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow.

RES has been at the forefront of wind energy development for 35 years, RES has developed and/or built more than 16,000 MW of renewable energy capacity worldwide. In the UK alone we are responsible for approximately 10% of the current wind energy capacity.

RES has developed and/or built sixteen wind farms in Scotland with a total generation capacity of 417 MW. RES is currently preparing to construct Solwaybank Wind Farm in Dumfries and Galloway, and has just finished constructing Freasdail Wind Farm in Argyll and Bute and Glenchamber Wind Farm in Dumfries and Galloway.

From its Glasgow office RES has been developing, constructing and operating wind farms in Scotland since 1993.
