Building a sustainable energy future
Lease your land for a solar farm or battery storage asset, and you'll gain long-term, stable income, while playing an important role in the UK's journey to net zero.
We’ve been helping businesses to reduce their carbon intensity for years. And we’re committed to playing a leading part in shaping a net zero future. That's why we're developing, building, managing, and optimising the large-scale, low-carbon energy assets that will enable the UK's energy transition.
By building a 900MW portfolio of solar and battery storage assets over the next five years, our investments will help to transform the UK’s energy landscape. It means we’ll be connecting some of the country’s biggest businesses to zero-carbon solar energy; while using battery storage to help the grid manage the challenges of moving towards intermittent renewable energy generation.
But we need to balance supply and demand of renewable energy
Bill Rees, Director of Centrica Energy Assets, discusses our commitment to invest in 900MW of solar and battery storage.
We’ve been at the forefront of supporting individuals, communities, and businesses with their energy management needs for over 200 years. And during that time, we’ve been pivotal in delivering some of the major energy system transformations – from transitioning 14 million people from town gas to natural gas during the 1960s and 1970s, to driving the digitalisation of energy through the Smart Meter revolution. Tackling climate change now requires another fundamental shift in the energy system.
Installation of the Army’s first solar farm supports net zero ambitions
Spanning approximately four hectares, Centrica Business Solutions constructed the British Army's first photovoltaic solar farm at the Defence School of Transport (DST) in Leconfield - a 2.3MW installation that's predicted to supply one-third of the site's electricity needs.
We've got years of experience working with businesses across the UK and around the world to deliver electricity generation and storage projects. Our solutions have supported the decarbonisation of the grid, and continue to help accelerate the journey to net zero. Take a look at a few example case studies below.
