  • Jobs could be at risk if sector support is slashed, says local expert - Shropshire Business Today
    Boroughs The Department for Energy and Climate Change announced last week it has stopped funding for the Green Deal due to a low take up and concerns about industry standards This followed the department s decision the day before to scrap subsidies for new and existing small scale solar farms and comes after DECC also stopped funding for new onshore wind farms Mr Boroughs is managing director of Organic Energy based at Welshpool and was instrumental in introducing low carbon wood pellet boiler technology to the UK more than a decade ago I m not surprised to see the Green Deal consigned to history along with the millions of pounds spent on developing it It was always a flawed scheme which would inevitably fail And while we ve always advocated that switching to renewable energy generation should be about more than what subsidiary is on offer we would urge Environment Secretary Amber Rudd to consider the impact on jobs if further support is withdrawn The renewable energy sector is no longer a fledging industry but one of the fastest growing in the UK We would back the Minister s view that support must help technologies eventually stand on their own two feet but ask her to remember that the sector must also benefit from the pro growth pro business policies of the new majority Government We do not want a repeat of the solar PV boom and bust which saw hundreds of jobs lost and businesses go under because not enough consideration was perhaps given to how the level of support should be reduced and over what timeframe SHARE Facebook Twitter tweet Previous article Awards success for Shropshire care workers Next article Trade stands are a sellout for Shrewsbury Flower Show Carl Jones http 4 KA By0blG RELATED ARTICLES MORE

  • Bubbling up very nicely - Shropshire Business Today
    at Barrett s Mill near Ludlow is the brainchild of Michael Chesshire and Will Llewellyn who have developed a range of small scale modular AD plants designed specifically for farms and rural communities Anaerobic digestion is a process in which biomass plant and animal material is converted by micro organisms in the absence of oxygen to create a methane rich gas called biogas and a biofertiliser called digestate The biogas is made up of roughly 60 per cent methane and 40 per cent carbon dioxide The biogas can be burned to generate clean renewable energy either in a combined heat and power unit or a boiler or even cleaned of impurities and turned into vehicle fuel Sources Biomass from a variety of sources including animal slurries and manures crops foodwaste and agricultural residues can be digested to produce biogas The unique feature of Evergreen Gas plants is the design of the digester itself which is a radical departure from conventional tank design reducing both capital and operating costs Michael Chesshire is renowned as one of the UK s leading AD engineers After graduating in engineering from Cambridge and working briefly in the nuclear industry he founded Farm Gas which designed and built digesters for farms abattoirs and the water industry The company grew to more than 100 employees before being acquired by Anglian Water in 1990 Two years later Michael founded Greenfinch Ltd which pioneered the anaerobic digestion of food waste which through a series of research projects culminated in the construction of the Ludlow food waste digester In 2008 the company was acquired by leading food waste operator Biogen to create Biogen Greenfinch of which Michael remains a non executive director Will Llewellyn talks to farmers at a trade show Will who originates from just over the Shropshire border in Herefordshire read Biology and French at university before working in shipping in London Investigate A father of two small boys he decided to embark on a career change after first hearing about anaerobic digestion from a friend then deciding to investigate the subject further The two met when Will requested an informal chat with Michael to learn more about his new subject Will said Michael said he would see me for an hour That became an afternoon and at the end of it he said he might be looking for an assistant Will joined Biogen Greenfinch in 2009 Will left Biogen Greenfinch in 2011 and in October that year the pair started to develop the Evergreen Gas approach to low cost small scale AD plants and designed their range of AD plants which look quite different from the traditional models Evergreen Gas was founded in response to both government policy and perceived market demand The government made a commitment to work towards a zero waste economy in the Coalition Programme in 2010 and to introduce measures to increase energy from waste through anaerobic digestion which was later incorporated into Defra s business plan Benefits Will said The benefits are
