Japanese investor Kajima Europe has launched a renewable energy platform to develop solar and battery storage projects across the UK in a joint venture with Low Carbon Alliance (LCA). The Taiyo Power & Storage joint venture will initially develop a portfolio of ground mounted solar, solar and battery hybrid and stand-alone battery storage plants with a build-out value of £150m.  These early development stage projects are in England, Scotland and Wales. LCA’s renewable energy development team will provide operational management services including site origination, land negotiation, grid consultancy, planning and project development. Kajima and LCA also have a fully funded roof-top solar offer for the public and private sector that want to decarbonise their estates. Kajima projects and investment director Chris Gill said: “This is another hugely exciting step in Kajima’s entry into the renewables sector, as we partner with experienced net zero specialists Low Carbon Alliance. “We believe that moving into the solar and battery storage market is not only about making a long-term investment but also about taking responsibility and supporting the green industrial revolution.”
