Since our foundation in 2010, Blue Energy has established itself as a leading developer in the UK renewable energy sector, having developed, funded and constructed over 320MW of onshore wind and solar generation assets in the United Kingdom (see Our Projects) including the Beinneun (109 MW) and Blackcraig (52 MW) onshore windfarm projects.
We remain privately owned and have grown our business through a combination of significant private investment from our shareholders, organic growth and acquisition, notably through the acquisition and consolidation of the RidgeWind group of companies in 2012 and the acquisition of portfolios of assets from E.On and SSE.
We have worked and continue to work in joint venture and partnership with market leading funding partners and developers, many of whom have subsequently acquired completed operational assets from us, including Cubico, John Laing, Octopus Investments, Temporis Capital, Gravis and, most recently, Greencoat. We have also worked closely with most of the leading project finance banks in the sector including Santander, RBS, NAB, KfW IPex and the Cooperative Bank.
Each member of our highly experienced project delivery and management team has extensive expertise in the development, financing and delivery of renewable energy projects in the UK and a wide range of international jurisdictions. Prior to joining Blue Energy, each of them held senior management or ownership roles in market leading utilities, development businesses or professional services firms and had been involved in some of the world's most prominent and innovative energy and infrastructure projects, including solar PV, offshore and onshore wind, anaerobic digestion and the deployment of other technologies.
We remain committed to long term investment in the renewable energy sector and also to making significant, sustainable contributions to the communities in which our projects are located.
