Centrica plans to build 800MW of solar and battery storage by 2025

09 Nov 2021

UK-based energy and services company Centrica has disclosed plans to build a low carbon portfolio of up to 800MW of solar and battery storage by 2025.

The announcement is part of the company’s first climate transition plan, which outlines how it plans to become a net zero business by 2045.

Centrica said that the investment in solar and battery storage will focus on large scale projects that are directly connected to the grid. This will enable it to supply more low carbon energy to its customers.

The company added that lowering the carbon content of its energy supply by backing the expansion and take-up of clean energy is key to reaching net zero goals for itself and for the countries in which it operates.

Centrica has also revealed plans to invest up to £100m in renewable assets annually by 2025.

Centrica said that the Rough platform and reservoir, which in the past had stored natural gas, is planned to be converted into a storage facility for hydrogen. The platform is located off the east coast of Yorkshire, UK.
