Wind Prospect, based in Bristol, develops wind farms, from finding locations to planning consent and construction. The company also offers operational and due-diligence services to wind-farm developers and financiers. Sites with planning consent are typically sold to capital investors, such as Allianz and Hg Capital, while providing subcontracted construction and operation services. Site development drives sales in Canada and Australia, where planning processes currently favour renewable energy developments. In Europe the focus is on construction and operational services for farms ranging in size from just one turbine to more than 20. Overseas sales have grown 95% a year, from £1.4m in 2006 to £5.3m in 2008.
