UK’s Top Hydroelectric
Energy Consultants

Harness the full income potential of your hydroelectric project with guidance from our expert advisors.

Use our data and technology to uncover your hydroelectric energy project’s full income potential.

Our hydroelectric power consultants will help you at every stage of your project – from the moment of signing a lease agreement to decommissioning by:

  • Ensuring that you negotiate the best deals by comparing the amounts being paid to other hydroelectric projects throughout the UK and providing the data and other evidence you need to secure a higher rent for your hydro site. We can then give you step-by-step guidance and if desired, take the lead on any discussions and negotiations with your hydroelectric developer.
  • Securing you as much income from your hydroelectric project as the UK’s most experienced project owners.
  • Recommending the ideal contractual terms for the lease of your hydroelectric project.
  • Completing the transfer of Grid Connection Agreements and ROC Accreditation where you wish to take over the operation of an existing or previous hydroelectric project.
  • Providing a valuation of how much money should be set aside for the decommissioning of the hydro project.

And much more in between!

Meet Travis Benn, our lead hydro energy consultant

Travis Benn (FCA) is one of the UK’s leading hydropower experts. Before launching Lumify Energy, Travis began his career as a chartered accountant at EY and Grant Thornton.

Later, he joined the UK’s leading renewable energy site developer, Infinis. While at Infinis, he oversaw the payments to landowners at more than 150 projects (totalling more than 600 MW!). This was when his goal of simplifying renewables and creating a transparent renewable energy marketplace was born.

As a result, he has become one of the go-to hydroelectric power consultants in the UK for local authorities and businesses. With a 100% success rate in increasing rental income and having successfully transferred the Ofgem ROC Accreditation and Grid Connection from outgoing operators into the project owner’s name, it’s no surprise that Lumify Energy has become one of the country’s finest hydropower consultancies.

FAQs

I already employ a team of experts to manage my hydroelectric power project. Can I still benefit from your services?

We’re not brazen enough to say that we’ll completely replace a team of professional advisors as most wind projects are so multifaceted. But we do pride ourselves on being able to significantly reduce project owner’s legal and professional costs and our specialist industry data significantly enhances the work undertaken by other advisers. We use our technology to provide our clients with actionable insights and accurate data.

Everything seems to be okay with my hydroelectric project, can I still benefit from your services?

Absolutely yes. Even the most diligent hydroelectric developers make errors when calculating royalties, they’re only human! Our award-winning software automatically re-calculates all income due to project owners over their entire lease using real-time energy price data and has identified improvements in 85% of the payments that we have reviewed. We will provide you with a comprehensive report with which some project owners prefer to progress matters themselves and others request that we deal with all matters on their behalf – we’re happy to work in either way.

Do you offer audits for all project sizes?

If you have a hydroelectric project over 250 kW, we can carry out a review of rental payments using our award-winning software that will quickly automatically re-calculate the income due to hydroelectric project owners over their entire lease using real-time energy price data.
