As part of the Cenin Group, Cenin Renewables develops solar and wind turbine sites. Our renewable energy business cluster at Parc Stormy incorporates anaerobic digestion, wind and PV generation, ultra-low carbon cement production, and Cardiff University’s energy positive Solcer House.

Solar Power

Installed in 2011, our PV array generates 735kW and contains 2940 Yingli Mono 250 Series monocrystalline photo-voltaic panels. We have also completed in Spring 2017, a solar farm west of Cardiff generating 3MW.

Wind Power

Our first wind turbine, T1, was installed in November 2015. It is a 100m tip height 1.5MW Vensys 77 which can operate in wind speeds between 3m/s and 22m/s. We have planning permission for a second wind turbine on site. T2 will have a tip height of 125m and produce 2.5MW. T2 is planned for construction in late 2017.

Anaerobic Digestor

The Agrivert 3.2MW Anaerobic Digestion plant was opened by the First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones on December 2nd 2016.  The first of its type in Wales, the plant converts food waste and organic matter into biogas which fuels an electricity generator. Surplus heat is fed to Cenin’s low carbon cement plant for use in the minerals drying process, while organic digestate is piped to our neighbour’s farm for use as an organic fossil-free fertilizer.

Battery Storage

We have planning permission for a 10MW battery storage system at Parc Stormy to provide grid balancing services to the National Grid. During imbalances of supply and demand the batteries will charge or discharge to stabilise grid frequencies, preventing black outs and spikes.

Solcer House

Solcer house was designed by Cardiff University to be the UK’s first purpose-built, low-cost energy smart house, capable of exporting more energy to the national electricity grid than it uses. Built as a prototype to meet UK Government zero carbon housing targets, its design combines reduced energy demand, renewable energy supply and energy storage to create an energy positive house.

To reduce the energy demand, the house was built with high levels of thermal insulation, reducing air leakage, and uses an innovative energy efficient design which includes Cenin’s low carbon cement foundations, structural insulated panels (SIPS), external insulated render, transpired solar collectors and low emissivity double glazed aluminium clad timber frame windows and doors.
