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.

What do I do next?

Simply go to the Land Assessment Tool and follow the instructions. This will provide us with an understanding of what land you own so we can assess whether it has a good chance of hosting a wind turbine

You can also contact us direct where we would be more than happy to discuss your project with you on the phone. Simply ring us on 0800 980 4299 to discuss in more detail.

How much land is required?

A typical turbine will require between half and three quarter of an acre of land (approx 2500m2). This includes the turbine concrete foundation and a hard standing that is used by cranes to lift the turbine components into place. Infinergy will assess the existing land use and ensure this and it's development is compatible; for instance farming activities are able to continue in operation alongside the wind farm.

How much required landStraight access tracks from the nearest public highway to the turbine will be approximately 5m (16ft) wide. Where practical, these tracks may be used by the landowner.

Where the scheme is larger a substation connecting all the turbines into one central point will be built and this will take up approximately the same area as the turbine. For Feed-in Tariff schemes the substation will be incorporated into the turbine site.

Financial Benefits

You would receive an annual rent for the life of the project (usually 25 years) based on an agreed amount, in exchange for granting Infinergy the rights to operate a turbine on your land.

Castle Pill wind farm, WalesThe level of income one would expect depends on many different aspects. Essentially the amount of power produced and the scale of project investment will determine how much you could earn from a scheme.

For a typical Feed-in Tariff project a landowner could receive anything up to £35,000 to 40,000 per year, of course this is subject to a number of variables, but for leasing a small section of your land, the return is significant.

For a larger scheme where multiple turbines are developed under the Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) system, it is more difficult to quantify the return and detailed analysis of the project would be undertaken.

To find out how much you could earn either fill out the details in our Land Assessment Tool or contact us for an informal chat.

How long does it take?

This depends on whether we look to develop a single Feed-in Tariff turbine or larger Renewable Obligation Certifcate (ROC) scheme on your land.

Once you have provided us with a map of your landholdings using the Land Assessment Tool, we will get back to you within a matter of days with our initial feasibility assessment. If the scheme is worth pursuing we will provide you with a valuation of how much you could earn and look to agree terms to lease your land. Subject to the agreed terms, Infinergy will look to cover the legal costs of completing these documents.

FiT Projects – Development of a typical single turbine

  • Initial Feasibility – 1 week
  • Agree Commercial Terms and complete legal agreements - 3 to 4 months
  • Commence on-site studies and prepare planning submission - 3 to 4 months
  • Local Planning Authority determination period – 4 months
  • Finance and construction preparation - 6 months
  • Construction and commissioning of the turbine - 9 months

ROC Projects – Development of a typical larger multi turbine wind farm

  • Initial Feasibility – 1 month
  • Agree Commercial Terms and complete legal agreements - 6 months
  • Commence on-site studies and prepare planning submission – 18 to 24 months
  • Local Planning Authority determination period – 4 months
  • Finance and construction preparation - 9 months
  • Construction and commissioning of the turbine – 12 to 18 months

Working with us

Our approach is to work with you to deliver the most suitable project without you making any capital investment.

Working with Infinergy

Our experts are able to assess how many turbines can be developed on your land, and whether these would be suitable as ‘Feed in Tariff’ (FiT) projects or ROC schemes . As such we develop anything from a single 500kW turbine to our largest scheme which is set to deliver 180MW from 59 turbines.

The value you receive is through rental payments or profit streams as a joint partner.

Infinergy actively manages the whole development cycle, from project conception through to operation. We commit significant investment and resources to every project, overseeing all planning, technical and construction issues to deliver the most commercially viable project.
