Bioenergy is currently a vastly underutilised resource, in the UK and globally, and utilisation is set to increase as a result of technology advances and a changing economic environment. Many different technologies exist for processing and extracting energy –both heat and power- from biologically derived material and there is increasing recognition that biomass in the form of wood, agricultural residues and other organic materials are vital components of the renewable energy mix.


Material that would previously have been thought of as waste is increasingly being viewed as an important energy source. The requirement to minimise material sent to landfill, even after recycling, creates opportunities to use resources more efficiently as an energy source.

SgurrEnergy offers a broad range of consultancy services for thermal and biological conversion-based energy generation technologies. Our project experience ranges from small commercial heat generation to large industrial heat and power plants, and processing a wide range of feedstock from virgin woodchips and pellets to a range of materials that would traditionally have been treated as waste.

Some of our services include:

  • Project identification and feasibility studies
  • Process design
  • Technology evaluation
  • Resource and energy demand assessment
  • Equipment specification
  • Statutory consents including planning and IPPC
  • Contract preparation
  • Tender appraisal
  • Project management and client representation
  • Supervision of construction and commissioning
  • Operational troubleshooting
  • Due diligence and assessment services for investors and lenders

Some of SgurrEnergy’s very first projects included consultancy on bioenergy developments so our depth of knowledge and experience in energy from waste initiatives is vast.
