EDF Renewables UK is starting a new partnership with Octo Energy to identify and deliver 200 MW of hybrid solar and battery storage projects in England and Wales.
Octo Energy will be seeking out opportunities for EDF on dual-use sites, working with landowners and farmers who are looking to diversify into energy.
The move comes as part of EDF Group’s plans to double installed renewable energy capacity from 28 GW to 50 GW by 2030. It also forms part of the Electricity Storage Plan, contributing to EDF’s target of being the leader in Europe with 10 GW of additional storage by 2035.
