Energy Entrepreneurs 2019 takes a look at how independent power generators are beginning to use different assets and products to continue growth in the sector. Battery storage and gas peaking plant are now the focus of investment for independent project developers looking to maximise the potential of their generation sites.
Headline figures from the report include:
- How the overall capacity of independent renewable projects in the UK has increased 199% since our first Energy Entrepreneurs Report (2012)
- How the battery storage planning pipeline doubled to 4.9GW in 2018 as renewables developers look to maximise revenues
- How existing energy entrepreneurs invested £36.6m in gas peaking plant that delivered in 2018 - helping to enable the low-carbon transition and further the roll-out of renewables
