The licence finder tool helps you to understand the consenting process for renewable energy projects. The tool creates a curated list of permits and licences you may need for your project. It helps to know the technology you're using, the scale of your project, and the stage it's in.

Renewable project stages

Renewable energy projects can be split into the following stages.

  1. Design and Construction: the process from project conception to energisation
  2. Operations and Maintenance: the project's operational lifetime
  3. Project End: decommissioning, extending or repowering a project
