Trinity Hall Solar Farm

Trinity Hall Solar Farm is a proposed new solar farm on land located north of Stanbridge Road, Tilsworth, Leighton Buzzard.

The proposals involve European Energy funding, developing, constructing and operating a solar photovoltaic (“PV”) power plant on 26 hectares at the above location. The installation will have a peak power output of 18 MW (megawatts), sufficient to  – produce enough clean, renewable energy to power the equivalent of 5,500 local homes annually.

Nissan Solar Farm

Power purchase agreements: Nissan

Many corporations across the globe are looking to source their power consumption needs from renewable energy production facilities, not only because it is more environmentally friendly than traditional fossil fuels, but mostly because of the economic benefits. The arrangement between corporates and renewable energy producers to supply electricity are formalized in agreements known as Power Purchase Agreements.  While these agreements are not a new phenomenon, the size and frequency of deals has picked up in recent years.

A recent example is the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan. Their electrical powered vehicle, the Nissan Leaf, is manufactured at their factory in Sunderland, UK.

European Energy was approached by Nissan to construct a solar park in the centre of their test track, adjacent to their factory in 2015, with the aim of producing sufficient energy to run the entire production through a renewable resource. The park is now fully operational and successfully supplies Nissans production facilities with green power.

Troy Solar Farm, Apulia Italy

Built in just one year in the Covid 19 era, the Apulian photovoltaic field was connected to the grid at the end of June 2020 and is currently the largest single connection plant ever built in Italy. It has a power of 103 MW and covers 1,500,000 square meters, producing 150,000,000 KW of clean energy per year, sufficient to meet the demand of about 50,000 homes.

The latest generation modules with which the plant was built allow a double yield in the same space and save about 80,000 tons of CO2 annually.
