    Year in Review 2018

    By Accounting for Energy – (3 min read)

    As the year draws to a close, we take a look back on some of the blogs we have brought you this year…

    Spotlight On…
    We started the year by showcasing some work we have done with a client who saw a 56 per cent increase in wind farm income following our audit. We also highlighted how as one of the biggest landowners in the country, this client is seeking to ‘green’ their organisation. We have had another great year of helping organisations to get the best deals on their land rent payments and we have more stories like this to share with you in 2019.

    Conwy Borough Council lead the way
    This forward-thinking Welsh council is the embodiment of excellent waste management, as they have bucked the trend with a scheme that increased recycling rates, made big saving and cut residual waste. Conwy’s recycling efforts are definitely a leading example for local authorities.

    Plastics, plastics, plastics
    Plastics has been a buzzword this year with zero waste initiatives growing rapidly on both a micro and macro level. We sought to keep you up to date with all that was happening though articles like our Carrots and Sticks piece where we looked at worldwide incentives to help behavioural change around waste such as the Plastics Pact, as well as legislative efforts such as the ambitious targets set by the Scottish government. With this week’s announcement on the government’s Resources and Waste Strategy, and hopefully more clarity on Brexit, we will continue to keep you informed with developments within the Energy from Waste sector.

    Coverage in Materials Recycling World
    We were interviewed for this popular trade magazine back in the summer. It is the first piece of coverage we have had, and as the UK’s leading independent provider on land rent payments, we plan to build on this in 2019.

    Green Brexit Pledge
    In the early Autumn, it looked like we were making firm progress with our departure from the EU, and this ‘Green Brexit’ pledge felt like a stepping stone towards certainty. In this article guest writer Paul Spackman outlined how the Agriculture Bill, and the Environment Bill which was announced this week as a draft, will help shape the UK’s agriculture and energy sectors after leaving the European Union and Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) on 29 March 2019. However while we now have detail of what the government proposes, such as a new green watchdog with statutory powers after Brexit, we have no more clarity than we did when this article was published on the details of Brexit.

      “I would recommend Accounting for Energy because they are clearly experts in this area, and they were good to work with. It was an easy decision to get them on board because we really didn’t have the expertise or the time to be trawling through the lease and power purchase agreement.”
