About TNEI

TNEI - providing specialist advice to the energy industry for over 40 years

TNEI is an independent specialist energy consultancy providing technical, strategic, environmental and consenting advice to organisations operating within the conventional and renewable energy sectors.

We have a range of skills tailored specifically to answer the issues associated with increased distributed renewable generation and the integration of low carbon technology.  Our consultants have industry leading expertise in grid code compliance studies, noise assessment and modelling of innovative, smart grid technologies.  These skills are complemented by a number of other technical services; from GIS and consenting, to civil engineering and energy market analysis, allowing us to confidently guide clients through projects from concept to delivery.

TNEI also owns and develops the power systems analysis software, IPSA 2, which contains an extensive range of fully integrated modules enabling all essential studies to be undertaken and can be used to provide bespoke modelling solutions.

TNEI operates from three offices in the UK: Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow, as well as Cape Town in South Africa. Our clients range from large utility companies, large and small project developers, industrial organisations and manufacturers, regulators, public sector bodies and community groups.

We have been operating in the energy industry since 1974 when IPSA software was first created at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), where The Northern Energy Initiative (TNEI) began pioneering research into renewable energy in 1999. As a result of collaboration between these two entities, TNEI Services Ltd and IPSA Power were merged in 2004 and we have been delivering high quality consultancy services to our clients around the world ever since.
