Bee Green Energy Limited,
Bee Green Energy Limited is an independent renewable energy company. Our key focus is to develop, finance, own and operate onshore wind farm projects, from single turbine to multi-turbine developments.We pride ourselves on our flexible working approach and will always strive to understand and meet our partners` individual requirements.Bee Green Energy Limited is a dynamic company which is uniquely placed to develop and manage renewable energy projects over their whole lifespan. We have a desire to deliver projects that will help address climate change and build energy resilience. We are all about acting in a bold manner, delivering real benefits at a scale that can make a difference. We are self-financed, which enables us to realise projects quickly, and to offer a strong and dependable commitment to our landowners

How are we different?
At Bee Green Energy, we have set our stall out and our business model is to develop, own and operate the assets from cradle to grave. We have a desire to offer a share of the benefits to each local community we engage with and are in an enviable position in that we have significant amounts of our own funding available to us. We therefore do not require bank financing for projects. This both speeds up the development process, allowing us greater project flexibility; and results in a fully committed project developer relationship. 'Land banking' and 'flipping' are terms that we are uncomfortable with, and we give you our assurances that the project will be operational within the shortest possible timescale.
We are actively engaging with both landowners and major energy users in England, Scotland and Wales with a view to developing and installing wind farms across the UK. Our leases are typically for a period of 25 years and will, assuming we are successful with securing planning permission, provide the landowner with a significant income stream from the land. Moreover, once developed, the average 'footprint' of even a large single turbine remains less than one acre of land. We are in a very fortunate position in that we can, within reason, be very flexible with the structure of our commercial offer. Our experience to date is that landowners want an offer they can easily understand and administer, and it is for this reason that our Guaranteed Minimum Income and Top Up structure is so well received.
We pride ourselves on building strong relationships with our landowners and their respective local communities, so if you would like to have a discussion with us to understand whether your site has development potential and the next steps, please complete the 'contact us' section of the website or call 01594 546123.
At Bee Green Energy Limited we have a desire to contribute towards the ongoing growth of the renewable energy sector within the UK and to assist in meeting our 2020 target. Whilst all currently viable technologies have a role to play, we believe that the majority of the 2020 target will need to come from electricity generated by wind farms. Recent advances in turbine technology have meant also that it is now economically viable to generate electricity in areas with lower wind speeds, resulting in an increased number of sites with wind development potential.
As Government climate change targets increasingly influence both public and private sector organisations' purchasing policies, the demand for green electricity continues to grow. Many organisations now have environmental agendas which include commitments to energy efficiency and changing the way their electricity is generated. Apart from the fact that the availability of green electricity is severely restricted, procuring green energy from existing green generators does nothing to help fight climate change - it is only the building of new sources of green energy that actively reduces carbon dioxide emissions.
At Bee Green Energy we understand that reducing carbon dioxide emissions and electricity costs are two of the biggest challenges faced by major energy users in the UK. Our onsite renewable energy solutions will deliver significant financial and environmental savings allowing our partners to maintain a competitive edge.
We will be responsible for all of the associated risks and costs for the project and will negotiate a competitive Power Purchase Agreement price which will minimise your exposure to a rising and volatile wholesale electricity market and provide you with an element of budget forecast certainty.
There are a number of routes to undertaking a successful renewable energy development, and our approach is always tailored to the specific site. However, our projects will tend to follow the tried and tested model described below.
During the initial screening process we identify and assess the fundamental constraints and opportunities at a variety of possible sites. Once a site is selected to progress, we will request that landowners enter into an Exclusivity Agreement with us before moving on to the next stage of the process.
Detailed Feasibility Analysis
We undertake a more detailed analysis of site-specific constraints, engage with key stakeholders and complete a Town and Country Planning appraisal. We then also commission individual detailed studies as required to understand further any particular risks associated with the project. At the end of this stage we enter into a Heads of Terms agreement for the subsequent lease of the land.
At this stage, we undertake all the detailed studies and assessments needed to support a planning submission for the project and to prepare for its delivery on the ground. This process will generally be initiated by submission of Screening and Scoping Requests to the relevant Local Planning Authority. The responses to these requests, and subsequent liaison with the Local Planning Authority and other key stakeholders, will set the agenda for our planning submission, whether or not the project requires Environmental Impact Assessment.
Construct and Operate
Once planning consent has been granted, we undertake the negotiation and procurement of grid connection services and switchgear. We will specify, procure, install and commission the appropriate wind turbine/s, ensuring that minimal disruption is caused to the day to day operations of the site, and that all onsite Health and Safety policies are adhered to.
During its operational life, we maintain and operate the wind farm to the highest possible levels achievable, and encourage regular site meetings with the relevant site representatives throughout our period of operation.
At the end of the development's operational life we will decommission and remove turbine/s and associated foundations down to the pre-determined depth. All electrical infrastructure will be removed or be made safe, and the site will be reinstated to its original condition.
In the United Kingdom, the energy supply sector has for years been the single largest contributor to our national CO2 emissions figure, and at Bee Green Energy we have a desire to help change this.
Where possible, we want to assist the United Kingdom in its move away from reliance on fossil fuels by supporting and investing in deep green sustainable technologies such as wind, solar and tidal energy.
