1.  Energiekontor UK PI Ltd, (company registration number SC624998), the registered office of which is 11, 2nd Floor Somerset Place, Glasgow, G3 7JT, United Kingdom, has written to the Authority seeking its consent under Section 7A of the Act to the transfer of the Electricity Generation licence granted to Energiekontor UK PI Ltd, pursuant to section 6(1)(a) of the Act to Energyfarm UK Pines Burn LLP (company registration number OC428008), the registered office of which is at 4330 Park Approach, Thorpe Park, Leeds, United Kingdom, LS15 8GB.

2.  The Authority proposes to grant consent to the proposed licence transfer which, subject to our consent, is currently proposed to take place on 19 May 2020, for the following reasons:
