We are delighted to inform you of the 2020 Falck Renewables Recovery for a Resilient Sustainable Future competition. We’re looking for innovative projects that can really help make a difference to the quality of life in your area as we adjust to life with Covid19. Potential projects can cover anything from education and health and wellbeing to generating sustainable energy and combatting climate change, as long as they are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Perhaps you have a great idea for a project which would deliver sustainable mobility while allowing social distancing; a plan for using digitalisation to enable better business/life/social cohesion; or a need for equipment or training which could spark local entrepreneurial skills or support sustainable businesses.

Announcement from the Board
It is with great sadness that we advise of the death of Ross Balharry. Ross was a Director of the Co-op from day 1 and part of the team that successfully attracted over £700k of investors, which given Boyndie was the first Wind Farm Co-op in Scotland was a remarkable achievement. Ross’s positive contribution to the board continued right up until his death. When he brought matters up, or commented on topics being discussed, he was always worth listening to. He will be greatly missed by the Board.
Located on he north coast of Aberdeenshire between Portsoy and Banff. The wind farm has 8 turbines and when it’s operating fully it generates 16.30 MW of electricity. That is enough clean, green energy to supply around 9,100 homes – roughly equal to all the homes in Banff, Whitehills, Portsoy and all the nearby rural areas.
To generate clean, green electricity and help reduce reliance on existing less environmentally-friendly energy resources.
The Boyndie Wind Farm Co-op is part of a family of co-ops being developed by Energy4All Ltd in partnership with Falck Renewables Wind Limited.
