Thrive Renewables connects people to sustainable energy. Thanks to our thousands of investors – large and small – we’ve been building and operating renewable energy projects in the UK for nearly 30 years.
Members of the Thrive team travelled to Manchester for the Community Energy Awards last week – and we were thrilled to take home the award for ‘Collaboration in Community Energy’ alongside Aura Power, Bristol Energy Cooperative and RADE.
We were pleased to see the government seeking ‘record levels’ of renewable investment, as well as promising an acceleration in grid connection times, but its decision to issue new oil and gas licences is a big disappointment.
With nearly 30 years in the industry, we have a wide network of professional contacts and are constantly on the look out for new projects which enhance our portfolio, match our investment criteria and have the potential to generate financial, environmental and social returns.
With the investment complete, we work with established and trusted partners to ensure the project is smoothly transitioned to its new owner, and for new projects, that it's built safely, on time and within budget so the site can be generating renewable energy and revenue as early as possible. Our projects are all around the UK and, wherever it is feasible, we try to use local contractors.
As soon as the project passes to its new owners or becomes operational it will be generating and supplying clean energy to the local electricity network or directly to local businesses. All of the projects we invest in will keep generating for decades during which time we manage the site carefully, commercially and sensitively. We consider things like the ecology of the site and aim to be a good commercial neighbour to communities nearby with open days, community benefit programmes and educational initiatives.
Our mission is to power the transition to a sustainable energy future, so we're always keen to expand our portfolio. If you have a commercial scale energy project to take forward, we want to hear about it, to discuss how we can contribute to funding and delivering it.
