Our decentralised energy support can help develop projects that
deliver multiple benefits for public sector bodies.
Decentralised energy projects can generate lasting cost and carbon
savings, and protect against future energy price rises. It can also
deliver broader social objectives such as ensuring security of
supply and addressing fuel poverty. The support is primarily
focused on developing heat based projects, such as a CHP plant
serving a commercial building; a waste-to-energy system using
household refuse or industrial waste as a source of fuel; or a
gasification plant burning sustainable biomass.
We can work with organisations that already have a high-level
feasibility study, or we can assist with an initial feasibility
study to determine whether a project is viable.
This service delivers through:
- Increasing internal knowledge of the technical, financial and
risk issues for decentralised energy
- Providing independent advice on governance and ownership
models, including ESCos
- Facilitating engagement with potential customers and other
- Improving market awareness through our independent expertise on
available technologies and solutions
- Supporting market engagement
- Advising on policy and planning structures
