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.
