Agriculture & Renewables

A complete energy reduction service delivering savings, subsidies and revenue streams to the agriculture and farming sector.

Fully Managed Approach to Energy Supply

The requirement to diversify within this sector has driven our product offering.  We have a wealth of experience providing feasibility, funding and technology solutions to provide a fully managed approach to energy supply.  We take a proactive approach in ensuring our clients benefit fully from Government renewable subsidies, avoidance or relief of indirect energy costs and an overall reduction in energy usage.

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 has 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 keeps in contact informing us of any applicable legislation or market changes which may present other openings for us and this means I would recommend Trident for involvement in energy-related projects.
