About Us

The UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050. The target requires the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, compared with the previous target of at least 80% reduction from 1990 levels.

Likewise, Ireland has ambitious targets that are line with the EU-wide emissions reduction target of 40% by 2030 and 95% by 2050, compared with 1990 levels.

With experience of developing, financing, and operating renewable technologies GFD is well positioned to play a key role in achieving the net zero target.

Our Sector Experience

Energy Storage

Large battery storage stations will allow the storage of electricity during peak generation times and its release when supply levels drop. As we shift towards a low carbon future, with increasing amounts of electric vehicles on the roads, the demands on the grid will increase, increasing the requirement for energy storage stations which will be integral to keep the grid stable.

Onshore Wind

As one of the cheapest forms of new power generation onshore wind offers many opportunities for future development and emissions reductions across the UK and Ireland. In early 2020 the UK Government announced it would lift the block against onshore wind projects, creating opportunity to further roll out of this technology.

Biogas

In April 2020 it was announced that there would be another allocation of Tariff Guarantees for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), with extended commissioning deadlines of 31st March 2022.

The UK Government is also putting in place a new Green Gas Support Scheme to support Biomethane injection projects. These schemes alongside the RTFO will support the development of new Biomethane gas to grid plants across the UK over the coming years.

Solar Projects

Another low-cost source of power generation UK solar capacity has rapidly increased from 5,488.6 MW in 2014 to 13,259 MW by June 2019. It is expected that this output will continue to rise with the UK on track to be the third largest solar power market in Europe.
