BQ Energy built our reputation by developing wind energy facilities on brownfield sites. We are well known for having pioneered this market by bringing the 36 MW Steel Winds facility in Lackawanna NY to a commercial reality. BQ Energy personnel have also played lead roles on similar refinery sited projects in Dumas Texas and Rotterdam, The Netherlands. In each case, BQ Energy used common sense development practices by understanding all stakeholders then looking for ways to move the wind farm forward in months not years. BQ Energy started each effort from scratch and managed all aspects from initial definition through commercial operation Each project requires careful analysis of the needs of the site, the regulators, the community, and the financiers. Merging the needs of these communities is never easy. On a brownfield, it requires particular care and skill.

BQ Energy is the world’s most experienced firm at siting wind farms on brownfields.
