Centrica and UK renewables developer Push Energy have signed a framework agreement to build a pipeline of solar projects in the UK.
The deal forms part of Centrica Energy Assets’ ambitions to deliver 900MW of solar and battery storage by 2026.
Push Energy develops, constructs and operates renewable energy assets and has delivered 350MW of energy projects across grid-scale and roof top solar.
Centrica Energy Assets, a team established by Centrica Business Solutions to develop large scale, grid-connected solar and battery storage assets in the UK and Europe, will work with Push to take projects from site identification to commercial operation.
In addition, Centrica will use Push as a turnkey engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) provider to build solar projects that are developed through a framework agreement between Centrica Energy Assets and Push.
Amit Oza, chief commercial officer of Push, said: “Push is committed to helping the UK reach net zero by 2050, by developing and constructing sustainable solar farms that give back to the local community.
“Working with Centrica is an excellent opportunity which will help us accelerate this process.”
