Project development

As part of our work, we partner with community energy groups to help them bring energy assets into community ownership.

The diversity of the services we offer combined with our flexible working methods and varied project and technology expertise means we can tailor solutions to meet any community group’s needs.

We work on a success fee basis and only recover our development costs and earn income when a project is successfully funded.

Our Services


Feasibility assessment

The bright renewables feasibility study gives a clear idea about how the community energy project can realize more value and enables the community group to take sound decisions.


Right model

Numerous possible organizational structures exist today for renewable energy projects, and choosing the right one can determine the success or failure of a project. The bright renewables team can explain the pros and cons of all models and give you advice on the best structure for your project.


Permits & interconnection

In order to build a community energy project air, water, construction permits and more need to be obtained. In addition, procuring the interconnection approval to connect your project to the Grid is necessary. We have the necessary connections and expertise to make it happen.


Operational & administrative services

Including the provision of company secretarial and corporate governance services, and support with the negotiation of all material commercial agreements.


Fund raising

One of our core competencies is ensuring that the community projects we are involved in get financed. This can be done through a community share offering, or in combination with other financial instruments (such as bank debt, short-term debt instruments, community bonds). We have been involved in the financing of projects as small as £20k going up to projects with a total budget of more than £6m


Share Offer Document (SOD)

bright renewables develops the highest quality SOD in accordance with the latest regulations and legal requirements.


Marketing of shares & community engagement

Cultivation of local media outlets, building a social media presence, and having a good-looking website, are some of the key elements when marketing your Share Document Offer. Organization of community meetings and events is also pivotal. Mongoose marketing team has solid experience in all these areas.



We are always interested in acquiring projects. This can be at any stage of the development process, but typically we purchase projects either “shovel ready” or post-build. All to bring them into community ownership and deliver local benefits. If you have a project that you think could be of interest to us, please contact us here.


Biodiversity Management Plan

bright renewables Energy is committed to working with community groups in order to establish sound site-specific plans that enhance biodiversity and maximize benefits for wildlife. Read more.



We have learnt the hard way the importance of having skilled project managers on site during the build process. Within bright renewables we have a number of people with a wealth of experience during this part of the project development process. Specifically, the interaction between the company building the solar, wind, hydro or AD plant and the company responsible for the grid connection requires a lot of attention.


Optimal monitoring

In order to ensure that the community gets as much value as possible out of the existing projects, we monitor the operations of the plant, and ensure that they are maintained properly.

By operating at scale, we are able to charge competitive market rates for each of our services.
