With 20 years of experience in renewable energy, Eco2 are the UK’s leading renewable energy asset manager. Our teams manage assets on behalf of the UK’s biggest renewables investment funds, across East Anglia, Wales, the East Midlands, North East and North West.
Our network means we can deliver the savings to small Anaerobic Digestion and Thermal Biomass operators that previously were only available to large renewable investors. Whether it is sourcing parts or feedstock at competitive pricing, or negotiating better Power Purchasing Agreements with off-takers, our relationships and economies of scale mean that with Eco2, your asset will perform better.
Robert graduated from The University of Nottingham with a Masters Degree in Manufacturing Engineering.
Robert began his career at British Sugar, where he worked in a number of operational management roles and later in agricultural operations management. Robert joined Eco2’s Management Services division in 2016 as part of the Fuel Procurement team, which manages over 1.5m tonnes of straw and woodchip using Eco2’s own bespoke software that tracks the flow of fuel from field to plant. As Senior Fuel Manager, Robert was personally responsible for the procurement of 250,000 tonnes of straw and wood per year at the 44.2MW Snetterton Biomass Plant in Norfolk.
In his role as Operations Director, Robert’s primary focus is on acquiring new business in the Anaerobic Digestion sector, with the aim of expanding Eco2’s development, commercial and technical asset management offer, which already includes wood and straw-fired biomass, renewable heat projects, landfill gas and onshore wind. In this role, Robert also provides support to existing business activities.Meet the team
Negotiating Power Purchase Agreements, dealing with OFGEM, sourcing fuel or feedstock, or compiling financial and performance reports can be a lot of work for an owner-operator without help of an experienced Asset Manager.
Wouldn’t it be great to have all this taken care of, so you can focus on the rest of your business?

At Eco2, we know that the needs of agricultural businesses are a world away from corporate investors and consultants. We work with farmers, hauliers and other agricultural businesses every day, so when you need something done, we find a way to do it.
We can handle everything involved in running a renewable energy asset, across technical and commercial management, project development, operational asset management, fuel procurement, financial reporting and regulatory compliance.
Whatever the task, we can take the angst out of AD, and do as much or as little as you require.
We have built our own software to make managing renewable energy assets easy. Our bespoke software handles contract, inventory, logistic and financial management, and manages the whole process of fuel contracting, ordering and logistics, from end-to-end.
Because our software is built and maintained by Eco2 in-house, we can adapt it to fit the way you want to work, adding or changing whatever functionality you need, at low cost and without fuss.
Every year, we source a million tonnes of straw and other biomass for bioenergy plants in Lincolnshire, Norfolk, and South Wales. Our teams across the UK deal directly with the fuel and feedstock supply chain, as well as operating 150,000 tonnes of feedstock storage capacity. Our network means we can maintain a predictable and consistent supply of feedstock for your AD plant, at the best value available.
Eco2 has generated millions of pounds of additional revenue for our clients, through our thorough understanding of the energy market and the regulator, from releasing additional support payments through OFGEM, to negotiating favourable PPAs.
With experience in wind, solar, biomass, landfill gas and waste, Eco2’s breadth of expertise in renewable technologies is unparalleled in the sector.
