How we work

PARTNERSHIP FROM CONCEPT TO COMMERCIALISATION

If you have at least 50 acres of land that you think might be suitable for a renewable project, please get in touch with us. Subject to feasibility, we would propose renting your land to develop a solar PV farm and/or Energy Storage site over a term of 30 years, with substantial rent payments per acre, paid on a quarterly, in-advance basis.

After an initial, no-obligation assessment of viability, if the site is suitable, we will prepare a detailed proposal that covers every aspect of the development. We will survey the site, obtain and draw up necessary permissions and plans and take full responsibility for creating a profitable project plan. Our team of world-renowned experts will handle all aspects of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC).

Even before construction has been completed we will have been working with our partners to create a long term operations & management (O&M) plan that covers every aspect of the on-going operation, safety, efficiency and viability of the project.

Because we know every project is individual, our approach is always flexible, personal to your circumstances and transparent. Our extensive experience in the construction of solar farms is your guarantee of the robustness of our planning and the reliability of our implementation

Management

In our capacity as asset manager, on-site health & safety is of paramount importance to us. Our employees are thoroughly trained accordingly, not only in order to meet legal requirements, but also to play an active role in maintaining and enhancing project safety

Operation & Maintenance
Supervision

One of our key O&M functions is to ensure that all work conducted at your plant is to the required standards and is completed on time and to budget. We supervise all plant operations, as well manage any necessary plant shutdowns and restarts. We also monitor and check the quality of maintenance and repair work, safety checks and the reliability of expert reports compiled by the various contractual partners

Grid
Management

Maintaining the critical infra-structure necessary to connect your power facility to the grid is an essential part of our service. We look after any installed substation and take care of all your local supply network connections. To ensure your income and operational budget is met or exceeded, any unforeseen interruption to supply caused by damage to lines or equipment is identified and fixed on a priority basis

Technical
Reporting

We offer a comprehensive monthly reporting package so that landowners, investors and operators are always clear about the status of the plant and aware of any malfunctions, repairs or maintenance expenditure. In addition, as part of the technical analysis, project managers discuss re-powering measures with the investors

Legal & Claim
Management

Effective legal and claim management is a very important part of an investment in a wind or solar installation. Rights, have to be protected and enforced, whether ensuring real-estate easements, warranty claims as part of material defects, or initiating proceedings for the preservation of evidence

Documentation
Management

With this kind of investment, document management is often one of the most neglected areas. However, Elements Green regards it as an essential area that, if nothing else, guarantees projects retain their value in the event of possible dis-investment. For this reason, we have developed our own, unique ‘Elements Green Documentation Standard’, that can be used to analyse the documentation status and to maintain uniform standards and structure

Plant Availability
Management

In order to maximise project profitability, we work is to keep operational downtime to an absolute minimum. When a necessary maintenance shutdowns is required, our on-the-ground team use local and global weather forecasting to schedule for low-production times to minimize losses. Every single shutdown is documented, analysed and where appropriate, manufacture warranty claims are initiated

Project
Budgeting

Our performance and project management team prepare detailed annual cost and performance budgets that incorporate both historic and projected project data, benchmarked against the best available data in the local and global market

Power Purchase

WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE JOURNEY

With a rapidly maturing commercial marketplace and ever more evidence of the importance and value of renewable energy sources, there has been a move away from Govt subsidies, such as feed-in tariffs and premiums. But renewable energy projects often still need to raise significant capital from financial institutions and investors, who demand security for their loan or share participation.

A long-term (usually between 10 and 20 years) Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), is a contractual agreement, negotiated between you the generator and the energy buyer or off-taker, to deliver a certain amount of solar or wind energy in future at an agreed price. The PPA provides the security of income generation that you and your investors need. But it needs to be carefully calibrated to the deliverable output and potential of your project.

Elements Green will be with you on every step of your PPA negotiation journey. We have the experience and the status to make sure that you get the right deal for your site. Not just for now but into the future.

We liaise with potential energy buyers, benchmark and forecast global energy supply prices and negotiate the protections and energy delivery supply guarantees that are appropriate for your specific project. We help you manage supply and finance risks, provide a complete legal framework for the agreement and the accounting systems that mean you and your investors can be confident of the returns that have been forecast.

LAND-OWNER’S FAQS

LEASING YOUR LAND TO Elements Green

Unlike often fluctuating farmgate prices, renewable energy projects create a stable, index-linked income, paid over 30 to 40 years, at no cost to the landowner. We work with hundreds of farmers and landowners, providing them with quarterly rents at substantially-higher rates than are usually achieved through traditional farming activities.

We encourage the continued grazing of livestock such as sheep or chickens beneath our solar arrays and design biodiversity improvements into our projects to encourage wildlife.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We want to hear from you if you have around 50 acres of land in a reasonably flat, well-screened area away from significant visual receptors such as towns. We typically look for lower grade agricultural land outside of greenbelt, AONB, SSSI and National Park locations

WHAT ARE THE DEVELOPMENT RISKS?

As your partner in a renewable project we undertake to ensure, at our cost, that we achieve a commercial agreement, planning consent and a financially-viable grid connection on your land

WHAT ABOUT PLANNING?

We will firstly screen the proposed site for potential legal or planning constraints, then proceed through all required planning studies and examinations, community consultations and council meetings with the local authority, in order to deliver planning consent on the land

WHAT ABOUT THE GRID CONNECTION?

At the very outset, our experts will thoroughly investigate the potential to connect your project into the local grid network or National Grid network. Once outline viability is ascertained, we negotiate the grid connection agreement and undertake all stages of the grid connection journey, from the ordering of transformers and switchgear, through to final solar farm switch-on and compliant commissioning

DO YOU HANDLE COMMERCIAL AGREEMENTS?

We will arrange the long-term lease deal with you on the land, working with your lawyer and land agent to arrive at a mutually-acceptable agreement. We shall pay for your legal and professional representation. We finance, develop, construct and maintain the asset and as an institutional investor, the project will normally remain in our ownership financed from our own balance sheet.

WHAT’S THE NEXT STEP?

If you have what you think might be a suitable site for the construction of a renewable project we want to hear from you. There is no obligation to proceed and often an initial conversation will help you understand the potential of your site and make a better decision about whether or not to proceed
