The portfolio is recognised as the UK’s largest co-location portfolio of solar and battery energy storage, consisting of seven sites and a total capacity of 720MW. Of this, 380MW is solar and 340MW is battery energy storage. Solar EPC and O&M services will be provided by construction engineering company ib vogt.

The acquisition of each project will be completed once each site has reached the ready-to-build phase with the first two having already been acquired and currently under construction. It is hoped that all projects acquired by mid-2023 will be operational between 2024 and 2026.

The projects will also be able to benefit from forthcoming contracts for difference (CfD) contracts or power purchase agreements (PPAs) with corporate or utility offtakers.
