Farm Energy NI (FENI) was setup in 2013 as the green energy trading business for ‘The GreenYard’. We are a member led organisation comprising businesses in the agricultural sector who have an interest in Renewable Energy.
FENI looks after the interests of its members now, but with an eye firmly on the future, through the provision of information, advice, lobbying, group buying power and a range of relevant products and business services. It also provides a shared voice for the sector as well as informing members of new innovations, policies, challenges and issues facing energy use in the NI agricultural sector.
Other areas will be added through a mix of member feedback and as the marketplace, innovation and rural energy landscape changes over time.
COVID-19 – FARM ENERGY NI CONTINGENCY MEASURES IN PLACE TO ENSURE CONTINUAL OPERATION OF OUR CUSTOMER SERVICES
Farm Energy NI is taking the spread of Coronavirus extremely seriously. Our number one priority remains the safety and well being of our employees and customers.
Our staff team is working from home but they are otherwise available as normal. The FENI office is closed but calls to it will be redirected and answered. Face-to-face meetings and networks events have been suspended and we are carrying out our correspondence through calls, emails and online conversations.
We are staying well informed of the developing situation and are following the advice and recommendations from the Government, relevant Public Health bodies and the World Health Organisation.
Current government advice defines energy generation as an “essential service” under the heading of “utilities, communication and financial services”. This means that NIE Networks, OFGEM & the Power Companies will continue to operate to the best of their abilities to ensure all power and export transactions are not interrupted.
If your generating site is being managed by our associates, Realise Energy Services, their engineers are continuing to service and maintain customers’ turbines to ensure their safe operation as part of the UK energy network and respond to unscheduled events as needed.
We will continue to monitor the situation and to be guided by advice from the appropriate authorities. We will also be doing our best to stay in touch with our members. If you have any questions, concerns or just like a chat we are here for you at this difficult time. Keep safe and keep well.
