We'll help you unlock the power in your water assets

Zebec offer a technical, environmental and practical appraisal of potential Hydro-electric schemes.

Project financing

We finance development

The financial viability of small scale hydro power schemes has grown dramatically since the introduction of the Feed in Tariff. Zebec is proactively proving the viability of small scale hydro schemes across the UK. Project feasibility is the first step to discovering the hidden value of your water assets, and can be undertaken quickly, economically and geared towards converting potential into productivity.

Zebec can provide a technical, environmental and practical appraisal of potential schemes and provide you with a clear route through the development lifecycle. Our team can provide you with a detailed feasibility and construction plan within four weeks of a site visit.

We also offer a planning and permitting service and the full suite of project development services. If the project is to be financed and operated by Zebec, we will fund the feasibility stage.

Creating greater value by financing opportunities

Turmoil in the financial markets has constrained renewable energy development opportunities, meaning fewer projects can benefit from the revenue available from the Feed in Tariff. This has been particularly acute in smaller scale projects. In order to accelerate development, Zebec can offer financing of projects.This would involve a royalty or land leasing payment to ensure a financial return to the asset owner.

Our in house financial modelling team can provide you with a range of options to suit your circumstances and aspirations.
