Broadley Energy Ltd

Farm Renewables
Funtingdon, West Sussex

Broadley Copse is the first AD plant constructed by Farm Renewables. They were invited to lease the site by the farmer, who is finishing 50,000 pigs annually in a new unit adjacent to the AD plant. This was a requirement of his planning approval to control odour. The pig unit produces 25,000 tonnes of pig manure a year to be used as feedstock.

Farm Renewables first began talking to Privilege about financing the Broadley Energy AD plant in 2016. This 1.8MW CHP AD plant was completed in 2017 and is owned by Broadley Energy Ltd.

Farm Renewables has two further AD plants in development and hope to work with Privilege to develop and operate a further 5 AD plants which will be gas to grid and biomethane injection projects.

"Privilege understands that AD projects inevitably come with their individual problems and challenges along the way, but they take a proactive approach to solving problems.

Privilege’s unique business model, enables them to provide re-financing options at a much earlier point than traditional lending firms, confirming their commitment to the future viability of AD.
