Shell has signed deals with two UK solar developers to support development of utility-scale solar projects exceeding 800MW. Shell has signed a framework agreement with the renewable energy developer Island Green Power to develop solar projects with co-located battery storage potential, with an initial collaboration on over 700MW total generating capacity. Shell has also partnered with Clearstone Energy to develop several utility-scale solar PV projects in the south-east of England, with a total combined export capacity of 100MW with co-located storage potential.
Both deals would be subject to a future final investment decision. Shell UK chairman David Bunch said: “Shell is building an integrated power business which spans the renewable generation, trading and supply of clean energy to businesses and consumers. “We will work with both Island Green Power and Clearstone Energy to deliver high-quality solar PV projects to supply more of our UK customers with renewable power.”
