About Bagnall Energy

Bagnall Energy Limited has operated successfully for over seven years, building shareholder value through energy infrastructure investments.

As at 31 March 2020 it has a portfolio of 36 energy generation and infrastructure projects and businesses, exceeding £200 million in value. These include businesses operating solar, wind, anaerobic digestion and reserve power assets across the UK. See below for examples of the types of businesses that Bagnall Energy supports.

In the UK over a third of the electricity generated in 2019 was from a renewable source. And this was a record year for renewable electricity generation which increased by 8.5% compared to 2018, from 110 TWh to 119 TWh, largely due to increased capacity.1

Key sectors:

  • Solar

    Photovoltaic (PV) solar panels generate renewable electricity and are often installed on the roofs of existing properties or in fields. Of course, a greater amount of electricity is produced in strong sunlight but solar PV can also generate energy in overcast conditions.

    Most of the solar assets in Bagnall's portfolio benefit from schemes such as Feed-in-Tariffs, that are backed by the UK government to promote renewable and low-carbon electricity generation technologies. Feed-in-Tariffs provide a fixed price for the energy generated by renewable sources to improve the return on investment. Having a high proportion of electricity sales at a fixed price for energy assets helps to mitigate power price risk.

  • Wind power

    Wind is used by aerodynamically engineered rotor blades to turn a wind turbine, which generates electricity. The power of a wind turbine increases exponentially in relation to the speed of the wind and the diameter of the blades. This makes larger turbines with higher wind speeds more cost effective.

  • Peak plants (reserve power)

    Peak plant assets are designed to support the UK energy market’s usage during times of high demand or low supply. For example, stand-by generators can be switched on to provide additional power when the supply is low. Periods of low power supply occur more frequently as the UK energy market transitions towards renewable energy, which increases the volatility of power generation. As a result, there is a greater demand for flexible peak plant assets.

  • Run-of-river hydro power

    Run-of-river hydro power harnesses the energy in water as it loses altitude. Unlike other hydroelectricity systems that require a vast amount of water to be stored in a reservoir, run-of-river hydro requires little or no storage. Instead, some of the flow from a stream or river is diverted through a pipeline to a powerhouse below. The pressure of the water in the pipeline provides the energy that is released through a turbine, which generates electricity before the water is returned to its normal course.

  • Anaerobic digestion (AD)

    AD is a natural process of decomposition where organic matter is broken down in the absence of oxygen. The process can be used to turn agricultural waste and produce, food processing industrial waste, wastewater treatment sludge and other waste organics into biogas. The biogas can then be used to power a gas generator which converts the energy into electricity and is fed into the national electricity grid. Alternatively, the biogas is then used to produce biomethane, which is fed into the national gas grid. 

  • Battery storage (reserve power)

    Lithium battery storage on a large scale presents another angle to pursue the sphere of reserve power, whereby batteries are charged when prices are low and then discharged at peak demand periods where pricing is higher. Additionally, large-scale lithium batteries present other opportunities such as supporting electric vehicle charging station infrastructure.
