Energy From Waste in 2015 – A focus on Merchant Funding

Energy from Waste 2015 will feature an exclusive spotlight on Merchant Funding when it returns to London for its 8th annual show.

The soon to be privatised Green Investment Bank (GIB) had announced in recent months that it was to invest in a planned waste-to-energy investment project in Hertfordshire alongside co-investors NOY and P3P. This will be the first time a commercial-scale Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) gasification plant is financed by third-party investors and will also be the first of its kind to combine waste-to-energy technology with a merchant waste supply.*

Hear more from the Green Investment Bank at SMis 8th annual Energy from Waste conference when Andrew Hartley, Director of Waste and Bioenergy, presents the latest developments in funding procedures for energy from waste plants. With a focus on merchant projects, Andrew will provide strategic guidance on what makes a project bankable, as well as discuss changing funding structures for waste infrastructure projects.

The spotlight on merchant funding will also include an address by the Director from Levenseat Ltd, Peter Maclaren. Peter will be providing a case study driven presentation of a merchant funded project that will discuss the funding application process, solutions to project setbacks, and top tips for future applications. When asked about his upcoming talk, he said:

"I will be happy to share with them [attendees] our journey to getting our project financed. It was not always straightforward and we took some wrong turnings but I want to show people that with a good business case, it can be done."

The session on merchant funding will include further presentations from North London Waste Authority and Sutton County Council.

The full interview with Levenseat Ltd Director, Peter Maclaren, is available to read online at

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
