With strong support from DECC in the form of the Feed in Tariff (FiT), hydro represents an exciting opportunity in the UK. Whether high head, run of river installations or high flow Archimedes screws, we are able to advise you on the best option to make the most of potential energy producing watercourses.

Unlike other forms of renewable energy, hydro can boast extremely high capacity factors (around 80%) and produce electricity on a regular, predictable basis. The technology involved is reliable and proven, often running for up to 50 years with minimal maintenance.

Whilst satisfyingly simple and extremely effective once operational, getting hydro projects to that stage isn’t always so straight forward. We offer a full development service and will take projects from cradle to grave.

We specialise in both FiT scale (up to 5MW) and ROCs based projects. Opportunities for large hydro, pumped storage and tidal range hydro also exist and have huge potential in the UK.
