Infinergy is active in the development of onshore wind and solar PV projects. Onshore wind and solar are commercially mature renewable energy technologies, competing against fossil fuels on the energy market and delivering zero-emission electricity at the lowest cost to the consumer. At a number of projects currently in development, Infinergy is investigating opportunities for battery storage to be integrated which will help balance local network capacity.
The projects are developed on sites that Infinergy staff have screened for their feasibility. This includes arable land and large estates but also industrial sites such as ports, oil and gas storage facilities and factories. Infinergy develops small to large scale projects, from single 500kW turbines through to 50+ turbine wind farms and from smaller scale rooftop solar arrays to 100MW+ solar farms. Currently the company is developing around 1000MW of wind and solar in the UK, the Netherlands and Australia.
ManagementInfinergy is an independent renewable energy company fully owned by its management, Dutch green energy entrepreneurs Esbjorn Wilmar and Tjiwolt Wierda. Both are passionate about renewable energy and the instrumental role that wind and solar have to play in decarbonising and decentralising the energy sector. Having been involved in Infinergy for many years, in March 2017 they agreed a management buy-out and made the company their own. Since then, Infinergy has entered into a long-term partnership with Canadian renewables company Boralex.
Esbjorn is Infinergy’s Chief Executive and one of the two shareholders since the management buy-out in 2017. He joined Infinergy in 2006 and was instrumental in the delivery of over 25 onshore wind projects around the UK, including approximately 350 MW in Scotland. He has considerable experience in both line management, project management and business development, gained in the Netherlands, the UK and overseas.
Tjiwolt is Infinergy’s CFO and 50% shareholder since the management buy-out in 2017. Tjiwolt specialises in the financing of renewable energy projects and managed the financing and eventual sale of all projects that Infinergy has delivered over the years, both in the UK and overseas.
Infinergy has been active in the renewable energy sector since 2003, developing over 25 wind and solar projects. Over the years the company established a significant project portfolio, achieving a success rate of 80% in the planning process. In 2017 long-term directors Esbjorn Wilmar and Tjiwolt Wierda completed a management buy-out, taking the company forward and expanding into The Netherlands and Australia. At present Infinergy is developing a healthy pipeline of approximately 1000MW.
Successful renewable energy development starts with a handshake. For Infinergy, establishing long-lasting and constructive relationships with our landowners is instrumental. A lot of time and effort is spent on finding the right sites and for those that we take forward, great care is taken to develop them sensitively. We have the flexibility to shape different types of partnerships that suit all sides and, as an independent company, we can move quickly when required. Our team has the expertise to deliver reliable feasibility studies and robust planning applications, preparing the way for the best possible journey through the planning process.
