UK Projects

We have been investigating potential wind farm sites throughout the British Isles since 2003.

The sites shown here range from early development to construction and operation. To date, we have a project portfolio of over 500 MW, both in greenfield and brownfield projects.

Projects presented in teal are current Infinergy Projects.

Projects presented in blue have been acquired by third party investors.

Ardtaraig Wind Farm Community Open Days

After an initial feasibility review and on-site environmental assessments, the possibilities for a wind farm on the Ardtaraig Estate are beginning to take shape. We've submitted Scoping to get formal feedback from statutory consultees in the planning process, and now Infinergy is looking for the input of local people.

To ensure the local community is fully consulted on the plans, Infinergy is hosting two Community Open Days for local people to have a look at and discuss proposals with the team.

A newsletter, giving all the details is being sent to around 700 homes surrounding the proposal. The dates and venues for the open days are as follows:

Glendaruel Hall, Wednesday 22nd February, 2-6pm
Colintraive Hall, Thursday 23rd February, 2-7pm

Infinergy has started investigating three sites in Dumfries and Galloway

Infinergy is investigating three new sites in Dumfries and Galloway. The sites, all relatively close to each other in the Castle Douglas and Glenkens ward will include one potential Section 36 and two major development applications to Dumfries & Galloway Council. Applications for met masts on all three sites have been submitted for consideration.

Arcus has been appointed as the main EIA consultant and will be working towards submission of all three projects early 2014.
Shepherd's Rig, near Carsphairn has the potential for up to 45 turbines whilst Stroanshalloch near Moniaive and Marnhoul near Corsock both have potential for around 16 turbines each.

This is the first time Infinergy has worked in Dumfries and Galloway, but in addition to that, one of the most exciting aspects of this group of projects is their potential to deliver community ownership and help the Scottish Government meet its ambitious target of 500MW in the hands of communities by 2020.

Community Energy Scotland, a charity that specialises in renewable energy deployment by communities, made it clear that it was keen to see further community-developer partnerships at a conference jointly organised by the Scottish Government in November last year.

Infinergy acknowledges the possibilities of a win-win situation for communities and developers alike and would like to play a constructive role in empowering communities to become co-owners in the projects the company has started to investigate should they wish to.

Infinergy has gained relevant experience working with community groups by partnering with the oldest UK co-operative Baywind in Cumbria and the Totnes Renewable Energy Society (TRESOC) in Devon on jointly developing and operating onshore wind farms in England.
