A Copenhagen-based firm has joined forces with a UK investor in a joint venture to fund the development of a UK storage and solar pipeline of more than 500 MW.
European Energy, which will work with London-based Armstrong Capital Management, said it had been looking at the UK market for some time and was looking forward to “delivering hundreds of MWs of subsidy-free renewable energy projects” in the years ahead.
Thorvald Spanggaard, Project Director at European Energy said: “We are already working on developing our own portfolio of wind and solar sites, but have been looking for some time for local partners to help us to accelerate our development activities.”
Meanwhile, search engine operator Google has unveiled plans to open the world’s largest corporate solar and battery project to power a datacentre in Nevada.
NV Energy will build a 350MW solar farm and a 280MW bank of batteries to run the $600 million (£460m) centre. Google will use artificial intelligence to keep its datacentre cool.
The company has been using only renewable energy to power its data centres and offices since 2017.
