Wind Power

About 40% of all wind energy in Europe blows over the UK, making it an ideal country for turbines.Wind power is now the largest source of renewable energy in the UK. According to DECC, the total wind power capacity operating in the UK in June 2015 is more than 12,800 MW, an increase of 14% on the past 12 months.

Superior availability makes wind an ideal renewable energy source for grid-tied and off-grid energy needs.

Whether it is the approval, design and construction of a utility-scale wind project, an on-site wind turbine for off-grid power or wind power procurement from utility companies, Ameresco can guide customers through the entire process, from government and community approval to implementation to ownership.

While the installation and maintenance of on-site wind turbines can be an expensive undertaking, we can help organisations identify financing for the project without up-front capital by using a portion of the resulting energy savings or Renewable Energy Bonds as funding. Ameresco can design, own, operate and maintain wind power projects, taking over the ownership risks from the customer.

Ameresco offers Wind Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) financing and complete design, build own and maintain services, allowing building and land owners to install renewable generation without up-front investments or additional expenses.
