We are a landscape design and environmental impact assessment (EIA) consultancy. We can help with all forms of development from gardens to major roads and quarries, but recently most of our work has been connected with the design and environmental assessment of small hydro (run-of-river and Archimedes screw) and wind energy. We work with developers, landowners, installers and planning authorities. We work across the whole of the UK.

We are based in Carlisle.

Ellergreen Hydro Ltd
Ellergreen Estate , Kendal LA9 5SD

We are a hydro developer and service provider. Delivery: We offer everything you need to get a hydro project off the ground, including feasibility, design & consenting, construction, project management. Development: We construct and operate our own schemes and community-owned schemes, primarily in the Lake District and Wales. Heat pumps: Heat pumps are a great compliment to a hydro scheme or for use in their own right using electricity from the grid network. We design and install heat pump installations with a particular focus on commercial-scale water-source heat pump projects.

Ellergreen began to explore UK hydro potential in 2006. Development of a number of schemes began in 2007 and in 2008 we decided to form a new business – Ellergreen Hydro Ltd – with additional partners and shareholders. Though we’re a relatively new company, our roots are ancient. Our forefathers installed one of the world’s first turbines in 1855. And we like to think that it inspired our partners Gilkes (only two miles down the road) to build their first turbine only a year later, in 1856. It was an auspicious moment – they’ve been hydro industry world leaders ever since.

The Insumate system was invented and patented by Penrith resident Raymond Robinson. Insumate is an innovative, development-driven company, leading the way in insulation installation technologies. Central to our philosophy is the belief that products should be client driven. We understand building processes and the needs of the industry. Therefore, we strive to develop products that simplify and improve construction practices, along with reducing the energy usage of buildings.
