Coriolis Energy was formed in early 2007 by a group of long-time managers of a major utility’s renewable energy business where, between them, they were responsible for the successful development of some 300 MW of wind farm projects throughout the UK. These ranged from a 2 turbine, 3MW wind farm in Lincolnshire to a 24 turbine, 55 MW wind farm in Caithness.
Now working independently the team is able to develop wind farms quickly and flexibly while also benefitting from background and experience needed to manage the most complex of projects.
