Bineri was established to provide consultancy advice to companies and developers seeking to take advantage of the opportunities that have emerged as a result of the Renewables Obligation being established in the UK. Overseas developers, or other commercial groups seeking to develop on their land, usually underestimate the unique complexities of securing planning permission. Bineriís primary function for clients such as Broadview Energy, Bernard Matthews Ltd, and Harworth Power (part of UK Coal PLC), is to make sure their development risk is minimised, and financial and management resources are focussed on the best sites and key tasks. Bineri can advise clients on every aspect of wind power project development in the UK from site feasibility through to construction and financing.
Bineri was formed by Bill Richmond in 2005. Bill has a long history of successful wind farm project development during his time with Zond Systems Inc (now part of GE Wind), TXU and most recently as Chairman of the dynamic UK developer, Your Energy Ltd. Over the last fifteen years Bill has been involved in the development of over twenty sites in the UK, of which eleven are in operation or under construction, with a further four awaiting their planning decisions. He also has experience of the wind energy markets through much of Europe. In addition to his commercial responsibilities Bill was also a director of the British Wind Energy Association from 2001 to 2005.
