Benefits for Landowners

Exploring the possibility of installing renewable energy assets on your land can be a daunting prospect. We are a trusted partner with a long history of guiding landowners through their project options.

Our projects provide landowners with attractive, long-term income opportunities. You will not be exposed to any financial risk because we bear all development costs (including costs incurred by you). We also take full responsibility for securing the grid connection and obtaining planning permission.

Where possible you can retain the flexibility to continue using your land for other activities, enabling you to maximise financial returns and environmental benefits.

In some cases, Purchase Power Agreements (PPAs) are available to landowners who use large amounts of energy on site. This can enable the landowner to purchase clean energy below the market price and achieve substantial savings against the increasing cost of energy from the grid.

Our method is based on a clear, transparent process and mutual benefits. We provide attractive, long-term income opportunities for landowners. We pay all project costs and we ensure the asset is fully insured and maintained.

Our process

Stage 1

Initial site feasibility assessment. This includes submitting a detailed application to connect the project to the grid, as well as completing a site screening assessment.


Stage 2

Subject to a positive site feasibility assessment and your continued interest, we will agree the terms of lease with you.


Stage 3

Once terms have been agreed, we will carry out detailed project design works and compile and submit the planning application.


Stage 4

When planning permission and grid connection have been confirmed, the site can be commissioned.

Battery

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are the key to unlocking the full potential of intermittent renewable energy; the more renewable energy that is connected, the more important the ability to manage its intermittent nature becomes. Harmony have 42MW/84MWh BESS operating in the UK, with a future 326MW/652MWh in build.

Solar

Harmony Energy is currently developing large solar PV farms, using our project expertise to support landowners throughout the development process.

In the UK Harmony is developing 200MWs of standalone solar projects and 500MWs of solar projects co-located with its battery projects

Solar PV is a proven, cost-effective technology and many countries around the world are turning to it to help meet their energy needs.

Wind

Harmony Energy has built and operated 15 wind power sites in the UK, so we have a wealth of project and technical expertise to share with landowners.

Our wind business was backed by one of the world’s largest infrastructure investors - Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS). The majority of the portfolio was sold to Blackfinch Investments in 2019.
