We can provide a complete solution using a combination of products to give a bespoke renewables package to suit individual requirements
Welcome to Canford Renewable Energy
Canford Renewable Energy Limited (CRE) is an experienced long-term operator and developer of renewable energy infrastructure.
We have been operating a 7 MW landfill gas power station for 25 years at our site at Canford Resource Park, Dorset. The power station converts methane gas from the nearby closed landfill into electricity using spark ignition gas engines that achieve 90%+ levels of availability. The power station supplies renewable energy to all on-site users via a private wire electricity network. All surplus energy is exported to the local distribution network. At its peak the power station contributed to around 80% of Dorset’s renewable power.

Working in partnership with the Green Halo Partnership to provide green energy solutions in the south of England.
Solar farms are designed to generate electricity locally and feed into the local electricity grid using a free source of energy (the Sun) to generate electricity on bright cloudy days as well as in direct sunlight.
Turning the wind’s energy into electricity requires the use of wind turbines placed in windy areas of open land or in shallow water surrounding the coast of the UK. Wind turbines are huge structures, typically around 150 metres tall, topped with two or three rotating blades.
Storage batteries offer a viable solution for storing intermittent energy supplies associated with renewable energy. Cost is lowering as production increases, and the combination of renewable energy sources and battery storage appears to be the best option going forward for reducing environmentally unsustainable energy production.
Green hydrogen can be converted into 100% emission-free electricity or can be added to natural gas and burnt in thermal power or district heating plants. It can be used to replace the industrial hydrogen that gets made every year from natural gas.
Biomass is an attractive fossil-fuel alternative because it is a renewable resource that is more evenly distributed over the Earth’s surface than finite fossil-fuel energy sources such as coal, oil and natural gas, and may be developed using more environmentally friendly technologies.
Carbon capture is the process of trapping the carbon dioxide at its emission source, transporting it to a storage location (usually deep underground) and isolating it. Carbon offsetting is the reduction of emissions of carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases from the atmosphere to compensate for emissions made elsewhere
Each of the renewable services offered by CRE are complementary to each other, providing 24-hour energy generation as well as energy storage.
Dorset Green H2 – South West’s first solar to green hydrogen production plant ready to produce clean, zero emission, green renewable energy
‘Dorset Green H2’ is Canford Renewable Energy’s (CRE’s) first green hydrogen project and also the first facility of this type in the South-West region and one of the first in the UK. The 5MW solar park in Wimborne, near Poole, was energised in October 2022 and feeds electricity into a co-located hydrogen electrolyser to produce […]Read More
Dorset’s local hydrogen economy has taken a huge step forward with the recent approval of the Dorset Green H2 project at Canford Resource Park. The £6.5million venture will be the first green hydrogen production facility in the south west.Read More
