Gorst Energy Ltd

Exeter, UK

This is the fourth farm-based anaerobic digestion opportunity to be brought to us by Greener for Life Energy Ltd (“GFLE”). GFLE is an AD consultant and developer. 

The investment funded a 1MW Combined Heat and Power ("CHP") generating facility plus biomethane output of 2MWe equivalent. It can process energy crop and agricultural wastes, animal manures, slurries, grass and maize silage to produce biogas which is used to generate and sell renewable electricity under the Feed in Tariff regime or sold under the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. The plant has been injecting gas to the grid from early June 2015. 

Ixora Energy is the current asset manager.
