West Wind Ventures (WWV) announces that it is continuing to support Clearbell and Clean Power Properties Ltd (CPPL) with several projects.

June 2018

WWV announces the successful sale of the freehold of the CPPL site at Eastleigh to Hampshire County Council.

May 2018

WWV announces the sale of a long leasehold interest in part of the CPPL site at Eastleigh to Riverdale Industrial Park Ltd.

March 2015

WWV announces that the CPPL site at Thames Haven in Thurrock has been awarded planning permission for the thermal and biological treatment of c.200,000 tpa of waste including RDF, wood waste and biomass, making it one of the few consented waste treatment sites within the London area.

Thames Haven is the fourth site in the CPPL portfolio of renewable energy facilities to have received planning permission and benefits from competitively priced electrical and gas grid connections with the added benefit of a rail connection.

The planning permission at Thames Haven allows the construction and operation of an Energy Recovery Centre consisting of an 8-12MWe Advanced Conversion Technology plant and 2-3MWe Anaerobic Digestion plant, giving the potential for a minimum of 15MWe of export to the grid. WWV is working with funders, developers and technology providers to bring the sites forward into full operation. 

November 2014

WWV announces that three sites in the CPPL portfolio of renewable energy facilities have now received Renewable Obligation Certificate (ROC) Pre-Accreditation.

Confirmation has been received from Ofgem that Notices of Intent (ROC Grace Period Pre-accreditation applications) have been accepted for three of Clean Power Properties sites, which also have planning permissions. Work carried out by West Wind Ventures and RLand Energy on the Clean Power Properties portfolio enabled the pre-accreditation of the Advanced Conversion Technology elements of the sites located in:

  • Corby (Northamptonshire),

  • Washwood Heath (Birmingham), and

  • Eastleigh (Hampshire)

The ROC pre-accreditation enables Advanced Conversion Technology access to the 20-year RO subsidy, providing some certainty during the transition between the RO and the new Contracts for Difference scheme. This also gives flexibility to Clean Power Properties as its projects move forward as they can choose between the two subsidy regimes depending on the timeline for implementation.

CPPL and WWV are continuing to establish partnerships with developers, technology providers, waste operators and funders to develop the wider portfolio of sites. If you or any of your contacts are interested in discussing the opportunity with respect to the portfolio, or for individual sites, please contact us.

March 2014

WWV is pleased to report the grant of planning permission for CPPL to develop a renewable energy site in Eastleigh, Hampshire. Thus far, this brings the total number of consented sites to three; two of which have been granted in 2014.

CPPL's planning permission is to build a modern energy recovery and solar power facility off Chickenhall Lane in Eastleigh, on the 16 acre site which comprises unused land near Southampton Airport. The planning permission includes using a photovoltaic array to capture solar energy, and also allows for the generation of up to 15MWe of renewable energy using advanced conversion technologies such as anaerobic digestion and advanced thermal treatment. There is also a possibility of adding complimentary technologies such as peak power generation on the site.

February 2014

WWV is pleased to report that CPPL's renewable energy site in Corby has received planning permission. The planning permission is for a modern energy recovery centre off Shelton Road, Corby utilising 6 acres of land currently used as car-parking for a nearby business.

The planning permission allows for the generation of up to 15MWe of renewable energy using advanced conversion technologies such as anaerobic digestion and advanced thermal treatment. There is also a possibility of adding complimentary technologies like peak power generation on the site.

June 2013

WWV is engaged to support the £300 million Mountgrange Real Estate Opportunity Fund to develop their CPPL portfolio which consists of a pipeline of approximately 15 sites, currently with or progressing through the planning process.

CPPL is a recycling and renewable energy company with a new approach to securing land, gaining consents and selecting relevant renewable technologies for project development.

WWV is actively looking for development partners for the CPPL sites.
