Evermore is an energy company, founded by entrepreneurs to develop, finance and deliver exceptional projects in the fast paced energy and technology sectors.
At Evermore we're here to make a difference.
We’re a purpose driven organisation and we’re passionate about bringing innovative energy projects to the global energy market for a cleaner more sustainable future. We’ve interests in generation, storage, EV charging and data storage, and our focus is on originating, developing and managing energy related projects from initial concepts through to operational assets. We maintain a pipeline of strategic infrastructure projects that involve project financing, construction, operation and ultimately the long term optimisation of the assets that we develop.
From biomass to clean energy
Lisahally Biomass CHP Plant
The Lisahally Biomass combined heat and power (CHP) plant generates 16 MW of electricity and 6MW of heat, the equivalent of enough energy to power 30,000 homes and businesses in the area. The power plant is the first of its kind on the island of Ireland and represents an £83m investment into Northern Ireland. Over its lifetime the Project will save over two million tonnes of wood from landfill which is the same amount of carbon as taking 77,000 cars off the road.
The plant was built and is operated by Burmeister & Wain Scandinavian Contractor A/S (BWSC) who are one of the world’s leading medium-sized commercial scale power plant providers. The biomass will be supplied under a longterm fuel contract with Stobart Biomass Products Limited with provisions made to maximise the use of local wood biomass. Power NI purchase all of the green energy produced on a long-term contract. The plant’s forecast operations life is 20 years during which time it is estimated that it will save around 3.7 million tonnes of CO2e, and it will produce enough electricity to supply more than 25,000 homes in Northern Ireland.
Transitioning to a low carbon economy
Belfast Power Station
Evermore Energy and Crescent Capital have plans to invest more than £280m in developing Ireland’s most efficient thermal plant at the Belfast Harbour Estate. The 480MW gas fired power station will be one of the UK and Ireland’s most flexible plants with the ability to allow more renewables such as biomass, wind and solar onto its system at any given time.
The station is the first large scale gas fired power plant to be developed in Northern Ireland for over 20 years and will produce enough power for more than 500,000 homes and businesses across the province ensuring increased security of supply for the energy market. The plant will be constructed by Siemens Energy and will trade its electricity into the new iSEM electricity market. The project is due to commence operations in 2023 and will create 700 jobs during construction and up to 50 full time roles once operations commence.
Energy storage where its needed
At Evermore we are committed to the fight against climate change and we are working towards our long term plan of a zero-emission model. To achieve this, it is necessary to gradually progress in the decarbonisation of our energy mix, whilst ensuring security and quality of energy supply. As the owner of Ireland’s largest renewable energy power station we know that renewable energy will play a very important role. In order to ensure a secure and stable energy supply however, the grid will need to be supported by reliable energy storage systems.
Therefore, the development of energy storage technologies is essential. At Evermore we are developing a number of strategic energy storage projects across the Island of Ireland to help support the further deployment of renewable energy and these include the Lisahally Energy Storage project and the Belfast Energy Storage project.
Enabling a digital economy
Clean energy generation is occurring everywhere. Whether its on rooftops or home batteries, in solar farms or energy storage plants, in this increasingly decentralised world, customers and energy providers are becoming much smarter in tracking energy usage, managing storage systems and using software to interact with the grid and make better decisions. As the power sector continues to move in this direction so does the need for highly efficient and secure data storage.
At Evermore we’ve identified the need for a purpose built Data Centre on the outskirts of Belfast. Combining the company’s power sector knowledge, project management expertise and asset management capabilities construction is planned to commence in 2020.
