CASE STUDY 2: Stetchworth Estate Farms 

Planning permission has been granted for an AD plant at Stetchworth Farm Estates which should provide great benefits for the client's business. The end waste product is a valuable fertiliser and will be used as a substitute for chemical fertilisers in the production of the energy crops. While Stetchworth Farm Estates has chosen a plant to meet the farm’s electricity requirements, any excess energy will be fed back to the National Grid providing additional revenue for future farm projects. Fisher German prepared a number of additional documents to support the application, including:

  • initial screening opinion
  • ecology survey to check the site and surrounding area for protected species flood risk
  • drainage survey
  • transport assessment calculating additional traffic movements as a result of the development
  • landscape assessment to show how the AD plant was screened

Although Stetchworth's proposals do not consider using the excess heat, Fisher German is dealing with other applications for AD plants which will be able to supplement heating in nearby residential properties, outbuildings or even open opportunities for future glasshouses. This is an area for future consideration and investment when researching benefits from AD.
