Energising greener communities

Father and child

Climate change and food waste management are two of today's most pressing lifestyle concerns for Britain's communities. The anaerobic digestion (AD) process offers a sustainable, practical solution that makes sense from a commercial and an environmental point of view.

Our anaerobic digestion plant at March in Cambridgeshire is now fully operational, the first of several such plants forming a sustainable energy network across the country.

With more than forty years of successful food factory operation within our group, Local Generation has built a strong track record for safety and reliability. We're working with the leading suppliers of AD equipment in the UK and Europe to ensure that our plants conform to the rigorous licensing standards of the Environment Agency and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).

Sustaining our commitment

Local Generation pursues profit with integrity. So we're genuinely excited about creating more sustainable communities around our AD plants. We're not only capturing green energy and heat from the AD process, we're also coming up with innovative ideas for other environmentally friendly products like a soil conditioner that reduces the need for inorganic fertilisers.

Local Generation's project in Fenland will generate enough electricity to supply 1500 homes, or around eight percent of the total demand for the March area, including that from industry and commerce. That's a significant contribution to meeting the UK target – 10 percent of power generated from renewable sources by 2010, and EU targets: 20 percent of all energy from renewables by 2020.
