Organic Rankine Cycles

We can provide services to the following clients: partnerships of four or more people; trusts and charities; limited companies and public limited companies. We regret we cannot assist sole traders and partnerships of under four people.

The science of thermodynamics took off during the Victorian era when the steam engine was transforming industry and society. It was in the 1850s and 60s that John Macquorn Rankine, a Scottish civil engineer, physicist and mathematician, developed the theory that underpins today’s Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC).

It wasn’t until the 20th century that the potential for the ORC to turn waste heat from gases and fluids into electricity was fully recognised and developed. Soaring energy prices and the need to reduce CO2 emissions mean that the ORC is now taking its rightful place in the renewable energy sector, helping to reduce greenhouse gasses while at the same time providing savings or a new stream of revenue for operators. The technology makes sound economic sense.

ORCs have been installed by major players in heavy industries such as steel and cement production, and anaerobic digestion. As the technology advances, it is of increasing interest to Local Authorities and manufacturing that has waste heat / water, and that are looking to make savings under the Energy Efficiency Scheme.

Waste heat is a lost resource that can be easily harnessed to produce electricity. The companies and institutions that take up this opportunity benefit from reduced costs and an eco-friendly profile – an increasingly important issue for consumers, when promoting goods and services.

At CMM Rural we believe there is no substitute for the personal touch and the face-to-face meeting. If you are looking for funding for a wind power project, we will take the time to get to know you and understand your business.

From there on we can source a cost-effective loan not only for today but with the future in mind.

Rising energy costs and Feed-in Tariffs, which mean you can be paid for producing “green” electricity, are just two of the factors contributing to growth in the UK wind energy sector. And with innovation from turbine manufactures also driving the market, methods of funding are becoming more diverse.

With our open market approach and established relationships with specialist lenders, we cater for all types of development, whether small or large-scale.

We have a reputation for both straight talking and an in-depth understanding of Britain’s rural economy and we are backed by lenders who have stood the test of time in our dealings with them.

Because we are committed to getting to know you and to understanding your needs, we won’t waste your time with promises that can’t be delivered.

From initial contact to completion a dedicated member of our team will be there to guide you through any complexities and keep you updated.
