Sustainable Energy Solutions for A Greener Future.

Going Green & Net Zero

Focus on Sustainable Energy

Our Sustainable Energy Team can help you to develop a strategy for a greener future.

Reducing dependency on the grid, self generation, exporting power and an increasing focus on sustainable energy in planning applications are key drivers for larger energy consumers to work with us.

We identify sustainability opportunities and assess the feasibility of on-site generation by analysing site energy usage profiles, assessing valuable waste streams and land availability.

The Benefits of Sustainable Energy

The benefits of behind the meter solutions within your organisation are becoming ever clearer. Reducing your exposure to volatile overhead costs makes for a more stable financial future, improved security of supply and a lower carbon footprint. Companies that have developed energy sustainability policies are more likely to attract external investment than comparable businesses without those policies.

An Integrated Approach

Our experts can design and implement a fully integrated sustainable energy solution, which covers the three essential pillars of Procurement, Efficiency, and Self Generation. Considering each of these areas as interdependent parts of a complete sustainability strategy ensures that your policy delivers the real and measurable benefits that you need.


Our expert engineers can complete feasibility studies to ensure that any proposed technological solution is the right solution for you. We have experience in working across a wide range of business sectors and have in-depth expertise in installing a wide range of self-generation technology. We provide a full feasibility study considering not only the nature of the technology itself but also the financial benefits against the current markets. We have a supplier list of technology partners, who can offer both CAPEX and financed solutions to assist in developing a bespoke solutions for your business.

The Feasibility Study will deliver:

  • Description of the proposed project
  • Overview of the technical and management feasibility
  • Potential advantages/disadvantages of installing the technology
  • The projected cost of the installation
  • Financial incentive (eg subsidies, grants, tax breaks)
  • Estimated Return on Investment
  • CO2 savings over time
  • Evaluation of quotations received
  • Identify potential suppliers and installers
  • Presentation of report


Your Trident Sustainable Energy Consultant will develop a strategy that is bespoke to your requirements and the individual nature of your sites, considering technology, funding sources etc. We will provide regular reviews to ensure that the strategy continues to offer the very best sustainable solution for your business.

What our clients think

Trident manage our OFGEM account and FIT contract, giving us confidence that the correct subsidy revenue is received as quickly as possible. Further to this, Trident have positively assisted us in the pipework and metering design and RHI accreditation process relating to our project to install a steam raising waste boiler to recover heat from the AD gas engine and utilise within the distilling process. Trident keep in contact informing us of any applicable legislative or market changes which may present other openings for us and this means I would recommend Trident for involvement in energy related projects.

Going Green

Trident offers a range of energy sustainability services:

On-Site Generation

On-site generation provides you with an energy supply at a more stable price. Typically consisting of renewable energy sources, including biomass, biogas, solar power, wind power and geothermal power, it is used in tandem with power from the grid and an option to export any excess energy generated.

PPA - Power Purchasing Agreements

PPA’s are places for sites who generate more power then can be consumed on site, so the remainder is exported to the grid. At Trident we perform a market tender to place the most suitable PPA for your business and our market analyst works to strategically sell the power to create the most financial benefit.

We also manage and place corporate PAA’s on behalf of our customers, managing the placement of contracts, validation of bills and market benefit reporting.

Subsidy Management

Trident manages sites claims for existing subsidy applications. We work with Ofgem and suppliers to ensure payments are claimed and made to schedule, to encourage positive cash flow through the business. We manage query resolutions on the accounts, and complete estimated data cases to recover any potentially lost revenue.

Battery Storage

Battery storage harnesses the additional energy created by on-site generation for use when required or at times of high cost. Implementing battery storage reduces reliance on the grid and provides protection from power cuts and rising energy bills.

Private Wire Networks

Private Wire Networks provide an opportunity to gain a direct benefit from generating renewable energy through the security of supply and renewable subsidies. They also provide a stand-alone supply in the event of the national grid failing to provide localised energy security.

Legislative Support

Our specialist team supports clients in meeting their regulatory obligations such as the Climate Change Levy and Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme. We also provide support with the application for Contract-for-Difference and Off-taker Agreements.
