Get 20-30 years of payments for your industrial or open space storage land
We are looking for industrial or open storage land to rent to create more flexible energy facilities, helping provide energy where and when it is needed most. As we transition to a low carbon economy, our facilities are key to supporting the intermittency of renewable energy as we transition to net zero.
Do you have a suitable site?
We need commercial or industrial land for Long Leasehold or Freehold. A suitable site will match the following:
- Close to high voltage electricity lines and cables, gas mains and telecoms
- The size of the site will be between 3,000sq ft and 10,000sq ft
- Ideally has level ground with existing hardstanding
- At least 50 metres from the closest residential property
- The site will have access to the public highway
“If you have a spare piece of land that is suitable for an Urban Reserve project, I wouldn’t hesitate, listen to their proposals, you will not be disappointed.”Simon — Landlord, Isabella Power
What will the landowner receive?
• 20 – 30 year lease income from a bankable counterparty
• Regular index linked rent reviews
• Significant investment in the infrastructure of your site

How do we develop our flexible energy facilities?
Follow our step-by-step process on how we develop our Urban Reserve flexible energy facilities. A suitable site needs many things; an electrical connection, telecoms, a gas connection (peaking plant only) and a realistic chance of obtaining planning consent. Our experienced in-house Development Team can assess all of these using our suite of sophisticated in-house tools. If you are not sure, let us do the hard work by sending us the property address.
1. Desktop study
A suitable site needs many things; an electrical connection, telecoms, a gas connection (peaking plant only) and a realistic chance of obtaining planning consent. Our experienced in-house team can assess all of these for you.
2. Securing connections
Urban Reserve projects need to be connected into local networks (electricity and gas). Securing these connections is vital to ensure a project will work. With your permission, but at our cost, we will submit connection applications to the networks.
3. Heads of term and lease agreement
Once we have the connection agreements, we can finalise the Heads of Terms for the lease agreement. AMP Clean Energy will pay the legal costs of drawing up the lease.
4. Planning approval
Using our in-house specialists and in collaboration with our landlords, we prepare and submit a planning application for the site entirely at our own cost and risk. Once submitted, we normally receive planning permission within three months
5. Construction and operation
With the lease agreed and the planning approved we move into the construction phase. This lasts 3-5 months. Once built, the unmanned site will be operational for 20-30 years.
Our portfolio of Urban Reserve sites are near to areas of high demand. Read what some of our landlords say about Urban Reserve.
