Victoria Lancaster is joining H&H Land and Property from George F White, where she held the position of Project Manager for gfw Renewables. With her background in renewable energy technologies she has an excellent understanding of the subject, managing wind turbine and solar energy installations, as well as advising on biomass boilers, heat pumps and hydro.

Giving further background to her new role, Victoria said: “Working across the Scottish Borders and the North of England, my aim is to enable farmers to have a sustainable energy strategy for the future, so that they do not have to rely on increasingly expensive fossil fuel resources and unexpected price hikes.

“Having their own renewable energy sources, either electric or heat, means that farmers and landowners can plan into the future and at the same time secure a diversified income stream. There are new technologies available all the time and clients need someone to keep ahead of the game in order to give the best advice possible.”

Victoria is a fully qualified Chartered Planning Surveyor specializing in renewable energy, with commercial experience in a Cumbrian solar PV company, a leader in the field of technology development and standards for solar energy.

Julie Liddle, Director of H&H Land and Property, gives some further background to this position:
“Victoria’s role is to provide professional advice to clients on all renewable energy and energy conservation. She will be advising landowners, businesses and homeowners how to conserve energy, utilize new technology or create a renewable energy income stream. Victoria will be able to assist clients in the submission of applications and documentation in relation to grants and will also prepare and submit planning applications. In addition to this, she is an experienced project manager, which means she can manage the whole process from concept to construction.

“We are very much looking forward to having Victoria as a part of her team and the invaluable experience that she will bring to the role.”
