Keith Norman



I head up our Energy and Industrial team. I advise clients on all aspects of property within these sectors specialising in business rates and valuation. I have vast experience of valuing complex industrial and utility assets including power stations, airports, oil jetties and tank farms. I’m a member of the Energy Institute and am business rates adviser to the Energy Networks Association, Energy UK , the Solar Trade Association and the Renewable Energy Association.

I’ve advised utility and energy companies on all aspects of managing their business rates liability.  I’ve led negotiations with the Valuation Office Agency and Scottish Assessor Association on specialist asset classes such as power stations and energy networks.   I’ve regularly undertaken valuations of complex infrastructure and utility assets including oil refineries, power stations and tank farms.  I’m  an experienced expert witness having given oral and written evidence to the High Court and Upper Tribunal in London and the Valuation Tribunal in Dublin.

My clients include EDF Energy, E.on, Essar, Glennmont partners,  Green Investment Group,  Shell, SSE, Total and Uniper.



  • Business Rates – I negotiated the basis for Combined Cycle Gas Turbines on the 2017 Rating List which delivered in excess of £10 million of cash savings. I negotiated assessments of electricity and gas distribution and transmission networks in advance of the 2021 Rating list coming into force. The Total Rateable value was in excess of £1 billion. I represented Humbly Grove Energy at Valuation Tribunal and successfully challenged the method of valuation adopted, which delivered savings of approximately £3 million.
  • Valuation – I undertook the capital valuation of operational tank farms for Purchase Price Allocation purposes. The total capital value was in excess of £200 million. I provided expert witness valuation reports for sites with potential for waste to energy use. I undertook valuations of land for new nuclear development.
