RES - a strong track record in Scotland

RES is the world's leading independent renewable energy developer 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 of 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 nearly 40 years and has developed and/or built more than 21GW 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 twenty one wind farms in Scotland with a total generation capacity of 597MW. RES is currently constructing Blary Hill Wind Farm in Argyll and Bute, and has just finished constructing Solwaybank Wind Farm in in Dumfries and Galloway.

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