Edgeley Green Power (EGP) is a specialist energy company which aims to become a supplier of renewable energy in the UK.
We have developed plans for a £20m small scale renewable heat and power generating facility at Shoreham Port in West Sussex. Having received planning consent we aim to be fully operational by the end of 2015.
The modern power station will be fuelled by a range of vegetable and plant oils and animal fats which aren't fit for human consumption and that have to meet the sustainability criteria within the Renewable Obligation, a government scheme designed to encourage generation of electricity from renewable sources. Our fuels will be independently audited.
Once operational we will sell electricity to utility companies which will be used to power homes and businesses via the local electricity distribution network.
We align ourselves with all other parts of the UK's rapidly expanding renewable energy industry and fully support the use of renewable energy produced by wind, wave and solar. We hope to be a part of the future of renewable energy production with our proposed development which will provide a continuous and constant flow of energy. This will work well alongside weather and tidal dependent technologies.
Unlike these other forms of renewable electricity generation, we will provide reliable, flexible electricity and heat on demand 24/7, 365 days a year - providing power whatever the weather.
We aim to work in partnership with all our stakeholders, including the local community in which we plan to operate, so we really do value your support and feedback in shaping our proposals.
