Energy supplier in hydroelectric power deal

Gazprom Energy has signed a seven-year deal to purchase hydroelectric power from 10 sites across the UK, Manchester Evening News has reported.

Gazprom Energy, the Manchester-headquartered European energy supplier, will purchase up to 17 MW of renewable power per year from Infinis – enough to power thousands of the UK’s small and micro businesses.

The deal includes trading power generated at 10 Infinis’ hydro sites across England and Wales, including at Barton Lock in Greater Manchester, Beeston Weir in Nottingham, the Elan Valley in south Wales and Duror in the Scottish Highlands.

The deal also includes the ability for Infinis – a leading independent renewables generator – to trade the Renewables Obligation Certificates and Levy Exemption Certificates associated with the power being bought.

Infinis’ hydroelectric sites harness the flow of both natural and man-made bodies of water through water turbines to produce electricity that is free of greenhouse gas emissions.
