The Renewable Energy Centre (REC) in the Castle Bromwich area of Birmingham was granted planning permission in 2016. It is located within Fort Industrial Park, off Dunlop Way. The gasification process is a type of Advanced Conversion Technology which will convert non-recyclable, non-hazardous waste into renewable energy in the form of power and heat.
As part of preparing and successfully negotiating the Fort Parkway REC planning permission, Pegasus Group acted as lead consultant, and advised in master-planning; planning; townscape and visual effects; socio economics; and environmental impact assessment project management. A variation to the planning permission was also successfully secured earlier in 2017.
Once complete, the facility will recover energy from residual, non-recyclable waste in the form of heat and electricity, which can then be exported to commercial energy users in the surrounding area. The facility is capable of generating renewable electricity and heat, both of which could significantly benefit local businesses, reducing their operating costs and supporting economic viability and potential growth.
In the second round of the Contracts for Difference Auction announced in September 2017, the Castle Bromwich scheme was one of only 5 five projects in the Advanced Conversion Technologies grouping to be selected by the Government, in a very competitive field of 40 projects which included offshore wind.
