Gas Peaking and Battery Storage Plant.JPG

Utility Solar PV, Battery Storage Peak - Lopping Plant, South West, UK


Undersupply of both demand energy and storage within the United Kingdom derives power fluidity risk to society. Covering full design, planning preparation and submission, civil works and construction, this grid connected energy facility will be called upon to provide standby electricity generation during peak demand periods and with rapid response balancing services to counter unexpected frequency changes to manage real-time changes in supply and demand. 


The project shall also support transition to renewable and low carbon energy sources, ensuring the grid maintains a consistent supply of energy, and supplements the expansion of sustainable and decentralised energy production. 


Well integrated amongst existing developments, utilising existing mainframe infrastructure and with a design ethos to be appropriate to its setting and location, the energy project provides a key source of flexibility to help address some of the challenges associated with the national transition to a low carbon electricity sector.

Unilever: Specialist Industrial Manufacturer, Midlands, UK


The aim was to decrease costs whilst improving reliability and efficiency, including management of output emissions. As a high energy user due to the scale of the manufacturing facilities, it was important to our client that they increase operational profitability while also improving energy reliability for their 24/7 operation.


The engineering operations team contacted the team directly via recommendation they had received previously. They were looking at utilising a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system alongside cogeneration capacity to help reduce energy cost, hugely lower their carbon footprint whilst increasing their energy efficiency for operational resiliency.


Conducting a feasibility study of the premises and assessing in depth the operation specifications surrounding energy demand and carbon imprinting, the team suggested a mixture of combined heat and power, and ground mount solar energy generation.


The proposed energy supply solutions will cover approximately 90% of the site’s electrical demand, with the combined heat and power unit electrical output of 1MW and solar generation of 0.5MW. This specialist manufacturer can expect their energy costs to reduce by 22% over the next 15 years.



Projected savings: 22% over 15-years with total energy costs reductions both gas and electric

Co2 savings per annum: 650.73 tonnes

Electrical power generation: 1.5 megawatt


Manchester Peak-Looping Power Plant, Northwest, UK


The conception surrounded a mainstream peaking generation system to provide the national electricity grid with up to 20MW of demand side response energy. Having a grid connection secured, this allowed the project to flourish with our teams’ design and full project visualisation, full suite of planning and design services, with supply and installation.


Following successful planning and procurement, the new power plant was in top gear to progress and become ready to feed top-up energy into the grid during peak demand times, supporting the nations low carbon energy infrastructure. The core of the project are the fuel flexible low emission gas engines to provide distributed energy generation to supply over forty thousand homes with fast ramp-up time ensuring true grid resilience.


The commissioning package included cold commissioning of the generator set, generator control system, the 11kV switchgear, 33kV/11kV transformer and 11/0.4kV auxiliary transformer. Hot commissioning works followed and G99 power generating application.



Power generated:  11kV by the project

Number of natural gas peak-looping turbines: 10no. 2MWe totalling 20MW

Power exported to the grid: 33kV, operating since January 2023


Tow Law Wind Turbine

pre-commencement planning, County Durham, UK


This project followed engagement to review, support and manage the discharge of planning conditions and the enabling works package for the deployment of a new wind turbine farm.


Full completion and conclusion of the discharge of planning conditions with the design and following installation of all the new access roadways linking the various turbine construction zones with the main road to facilitate the next areas of project development.


There was commencement of archaeological surveys, road condition surveys, topographical and ground penetrating radar surveys and environmental impact assessments completed to support the turbine programme planning and allowed commencement to complete.



Peak energy generation capacity:  24MW from the wind turbines

Number of repower wind turbine: 12no. 2MWe 

Landmass utilisation: 22 million tonnes of landmass removed and used in reconstructed access roadways


Wrexham flexible generation scheme, Southwest, UK


Appointment to carry out the detailed design, procurement, construction and commissioning of the scheme. Full cost and project analysis detailed the costs and benefits of renewable energy flexible generation and storage and drove this low carbon project to fruition and manage the ever-increasing variability.  


It was a critical step for power planners to overcome employing conventional generation and deliver the benefits of this low carbon renewable energy scheme adding to the flexibility reserves managing any grid variation and providing demand support and grid resilience.


Numerous challenges existed both in restricted site location, adjacent live railway and represented the rigorous professionalism and expertise in order to build and deliver the multifaceted renewable generation scheme. Built on time and within budget.



Solar pv system: 20MW via ground mount located generation.

Battery energy storage system (BESS): 12MW


West Chevington Farm, Morpeth, UK


Revolutionary sustainable living development, designed around the principles of operating independent of the grid to combat emissions and energy security. Commitment was made to deliver a highly ecological and high performing, environmentally friendly living space.

This basis was the perfect partner in delivering renewable energy to support and facilitate off grid electricity, and being rural manage the use of gas as heat sources. Dynamically designed solutions which include large scale solar solutions, air source heat pumps, high capacity battery storage and global leading Co2 removal; all generated locally harnessing green energy, minimising grid and gas dependency whilst delivering carbon neutrality.

This project is a showcase in how the future can hold access to localised green energy schemes delivering phenomenal results to communities and allowing net zero to be reached in line with the climate energy goals.


Project highlights are carbon removal, 108kw ASHP, 5000kwh of PV and 200kw of storage.


Project Capacity (SOLAR): 315 MWh

Development Cost: £1.2m

Expected GDV: £6m

Ravensmount Care Home, Alnwick UK


The site, following a robust search, was identified as entirely suitable for a unique development project, at the mercy of continued property devaluing, the scheme represents a well thought out development of size and stature that once completed will reduce demand on the energy needs of the local community with independent grid generation, zero gas dependency and zero emissions.


A turnkey project which will showcase the conversion to being a self-reliant energy site, creating clean renewable energy and poised to bring the future today, such localised energy critical to reach and satisfy global energy changes to fully renewable via advanced technologies and the ability to reduce the legacy emissions with deployment of our priority carbon removal solution.


Fully immersed and represented throughout the process, the local planning authorities were supportive of the developmental proposed development and were able to grant full planning permission, integrated positive environmental impacts concluding the high level demonstrative capacity of such dynamic projects.


Project highlights are 490kwh of PV and 100kw of storage, 120kw ASHP plus carbon removal.
