At Force 9 Energy we are careful to identify and develop sites that are suitable for wind projects based upon our key development criteria. This targeted approach, and our ability to forge good, long term relationships with landowners, communities and consultees, is key to our success.

About Force 9

Force 9 Energy is a successful, independent, UK wind farm developer, focussed on developing sensitively designed onshore wind farm projects.


UK windfarms in operation, or consented by the Force 9 team, already contribute more than 280 Mega Watts (MW) of clean, renewable, generating capacity in the UK. We also have a development pipeline of 275 MW of potential capacity, either consented, in planning or entering the planning system in the near future.


The UK has abundant natural resources and is ideally placed to be at the forefront of generating clean, renewable energy. However we believe that this opportunity should take proper account of the landscape, environments and communities where developments may be sited. Force 9 Energy is therefore discerning when selecting sites for development and is committed to ensuring that sympathetic and sustainable design principles are incorporated into our chosen projects.


We work hard at developing relationships with local communities, landowners, and statutory consultees. We are careful in our choice of consultants, working with proven, experienced companies who excel both technically and in their communication with key stakeholders.


In December 2018 we were delighted to receive the Best Engagement award at the renewable energy industry’s prestigious Green Energy Awards ceremony, for our community ownership initiative for the Clash Gour project.
