Why we do it

The UK national power infrastructure faces serious challenges.  Increased volatility of generation from intermittent renewables has destroyed the economics of investment in new generation capacity.

Capacity is urgently needed to replace the 2/3rds of UK generating capacity that will be closed down (old coal fired, gas and nuclear) by 2030.  The solution to these challenges is now clear.

We believe that investment in a combination of new renewables and energy storage can deliver the triple goals of energy policy: low cost, low carbon and security of supply:

  • Low cost; wind, solar, hydro and biomass deliver low cost but intermittent power, supported by energy storage they can provide baseload power.
  • Low Carbon; burning fossil fuels; coal, gas and oil can be largely replaced by green renewables supported by energy storage.
  • Security of supply; the UK’s future power supply currently relies upon interconnectors from Europe and investment in new nuclear. With the combination of renewables and energy storage we can reduce this reliance.

We believe that the problems of increased volatility of supply and lack of capacity can be solved by investing in renewables in combination with energy storage to deliver low cost, low carbon electricity with security of supply.

Low cost

Wind, solar, hydro and biomass deliver low cost but intermittent power; supported by energy storage they can provide baseload power.

Low Carbon

Burning fossil fuels; coal, gas and oil can be largely replaced by green renewables supported by energy storage

Security of supply

The UK’s future power supply currently relies upon interconnectors from Europe and investment in new nuclear. With the combination of renewables and energy storage we can reduce this reliance.
