ILI Group operates across the energy storage, renewable energy and residential development markets; creating value for our investors in all three sectors.‘Intelligent Land Investments’ was formed in 2004 with the aim of helping resolve the UK’s housing crisis by promoting eco-friendly developments where the housing need is the greatest. The experience and expertise gained in site selection and planning was later put to use with the aim of helping reduce CO2 emissions by focusing on creating planning gain from renewable energy projects. Projects ranged from medium sized, single turbine developments under the UK’s Feed-in Tariff scheme, right up to large scale multi-turbine windfarms. That project saw 600 landowners sign up with the company, creating a unique network of land owners throughout Scotland.
160 of the most suitable sites were progressed, resulting in 96 successful planning approvals.
In 2017 ILI Group Plc was formed with the express aim of achieving planning consents for three Pumped Storage Hydro Sites (PSH) in Scotland. Each one is an infrastructure project of national significance with a total combined storage capacity of 1.5GW, or greater.Suitable sites for the PSH projects were screened and selected from a list of over 90. Of these, 13 were identified as having high potential worthy of further stringent assessment. The very best 3 sites brought forward were those which meet our strict criteria, had the best natural topography, and met our high technical standards.The full planning application for the first of our three PSH project was submitted in 2018.
The Company plan to promote and achieve planning consents for three major Pumped Storage Hydro Sites (PSH) and several Residential Site developments in Scotland.
The Company has sourced suitable sites for the PSH projects from an initial list of ninety possible sites.
Of these, thirteen were identified as having high potential.
The Company then short-listed three potential PSH Sites which the Directors believe are excellent sites which meet the Company's stringent criteria and are being progressed to the planning stage.
These sites were moved onto the consultation stage and all were identified as having high potential for development. One site has now been through the scoping stage of the planning application with no issues and was submitted for full planning in the Q4, 2018.
Sites 2 & 3 are now both at the scoping stage and with should no issues arise be submitted for full planning in 2019.
The Directors and advisors of the Company have reviewed many potential Residential Sites in Scotland and will look to promote and achieve planning consent for at least nine major sites after securing each of them by way of an option to purchase, three of which are currently in planning.
