What We Do

Electric Land’s development platform is delivering a growing pipeline of best in class assets by securing predominately freehold land, viable grid and required utility connections and planning permission, and leasing it ‘Ready-to-Build’ to operators. All assets are held long term in Electric Land’s investment portfolio.

Site Identification

Electric Land’s expertise allows us to identify and assess projects against development constraints. Viable projects are selected for screening and development.

Due Diligence

Detailed due diligence is undertaken on all development and acquisition opportunities. DD includes planning, utility connections, land ownership and project risks.

Project Development

Selected projects are secured under exclusivity, formal applications for the utility connections submitted and planning is instructed.

Risk Management

Our development team works exhaustively to de-risk projects for construction. Issues around land ownership, planning, easement and ground conditions are all managed.

Our Requirements

We create ‘ready to build’ projects to lease to energy generating and storage operators as well as buy standing investment assets from third party landowners. These include Battery Storage, Reserve Power, Solar and Wind generation projects.

DEVELOPMENT REQUIREMENTS

We look for Industrial and brownfield sites at least 100m+ from residential

Greenfield land, usually for solar, wind or battery energy storage use

Generally sites from 0.5 acres to 10 acres and 50 to 250 acres for solar

Vacant or part let

We can use our in-house team to secure development rights including planning, grid & gas connections or work in partnership with landowners or other developers

INVESTMENT REQUIREMENTS

We look for transitional and renewable power generation investments including Wind, Solar, Battery Storage, Bio-mass, Waste to Energy & Flexible Back-up (generation?) projects

Freehold and leased operational sites

Undeveloped freehold sites – from raw to shovel ready

Sale & Leaseback and other opportunities to partner with operators

Forward purchases and commitments with landowners and developers

Individual purchases from less than £0.5m and portfolios up to £20m

Our Portfolio

Our portfolio currently includes 800 MW of generation projects across 28 sites in the UK. This represents a prospective £100m ultra-secure, index-linked ground rent portfolio with total GDV in excess of £750m. Electric Land currently has an advanced development pipeline of UK sites representing a further 750 MW.

Our Partners

We value our close and trusting partnerships. Since inception, we have also liked to work closely and in partnership with landowners, our tenants, banks, external development managers and professional advisors. We know that when you have trust in a counterparty, projects go more smoothly. And that works in both directions.
