Energy solutions firm Centrica Business Solutions has signed an agreement with renewable energy developer Push Energy, to build a pipeline of solar farm projects in the UK.
Centrica Energy Assets, a team established by Centrica Business Solutions to develop large scale, grid-connected solar and battery storage assets in the UK and Europe, will work with Push to take projects from site identification to commercial operation.
It forms part of Centrica Energy Assets’ ambitions to deliver 900MW of solar and battery storage by 2026.
Bill Rees, Director of Centrica Energy Assets, said, “This is an important relationship and a big step towards our aim to develop, build, manage and optimise a 900MW portfolio of Centrica-owned solar and battery projects, that will help provide our customers with clean energy.”
Push Energy has delivered 350MW of energy projects across grid-scale and roof top solar. This experience will be leveraged by Centrica to build and develop solar projects, with Push acting as EPC.
Amit Oza, Chief Commercial officer of Push said, “Push is committed to helping the UK reach net zero by 2050, by developing and constructing sustainable solar farms that give back to the local community. Working with Centrica is an excellent opportunity which will help us accelerate this process.”
