For most generators, it has now been a number of years since their generator was commissioned. A project review is a bespoke FENI service that is personalised to your renewable project.
It gives you the opportunity to sit down with a member of our staff and review how your generator is performing.
How to keep within the regulatory parameters of Ofgem and NIE Networks, such having the documentations in place for an Ofgem Audit, Grid Code compliance.
You will discover how efficient your generator is and how to maximise your income, if your site has the potential for Re-powering, where do you see yourself in the next 5, 10, 15 years and if you are interested in selling your project. Is your site suitable for battery storage, are your ROCs traded correctly and are you on the best PPA rate in the marketplace? Have you received the correct tax advice for your renewable station or is your land rates set appropriately?
Many more aspects of your generator will be discussed, is your turbine correctly insured and with the right broker, is your O&M provider doing the basics or are they looking at the long term health of your turbine, is anyone analysing the historic and current production data?
Everything will be covered to ensure your asset is working at its most efficient level, from a practical and administrative point of view. Treat the project review as a measurement tool, to measure how far you have come with your renewable generator.
Remember, if you don’t measure it, you can’t improve it.
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.
