Renewable Energy

Our current portfolio of potential energy projects consists of a mix of wind, solar, battery storage and pumped storage hydro developments. These projects are taking place across Boughton, Queensberry and Borders Estates, and could have an energy generating capacity in excess of 1.2 gigawatts.

In addition, we are dedicated to supporting sustainable initiatives that generate energy for use across our rural estates. This includes installing a biomass boiler to heat Drumlanrig Castle and a 200kW anaerobic digester at the Borders Estate, solar panels which deliver all the energy needs of the egg production plant on the Borders Estate, and a combined heat and power plant on Boughton estate.

The team at Bowhill House have also begun works for the installation of a ground source heat pump (GSHP) which will use a proportion of the electricity generated by the anaerobic digester plant to heat ground water and supply continual heat to the House.
