Sector: Energy, Minerals & Waste
Pegasus Group is leading the submission of a series of planning applications on behalf of Rolton Kilbride for Renewable Energy Centres throughout the UK. To date, planning permission has been granted at Rotherham, Hams Hall in Warwickshire and Castle Bromwich, Birmingham. Other applications are currently within the planning system.
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.
The benefits of the REC include the reduction of greenhouse emissions compared with landfill and fossil fuels, producing lower cost energy and heat close to where demand arises from local businesses.
As part of preparing and successfully negotiating the Fort Parkway REC planning permission, Pegasus Group acted as lead planning 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 successfully secured earlier in 2017.
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.
