Over the past two decades, onshore wind power has prospered and now exceeds 12 GW in the UK. The termination of subsidies for new plants from 2017 onwards has cut investment. Instead, offshore wind power is the new ‘goto’ investment sector, as there has been a sea-change in costs. The key event was the 2017 auction for the development of the Hornsea Project Two and the Moray East fields, when 15-year contract for differences (CfDs) were awarded, at just £57.50p per MWh; this compares with the 20

2017 was an outstanding year for stock markets, perhaps somewhat unexpectedly given the levels of pessimism about the state of the world a year ago. But such views turned out to be well off the mark, as rising corporate earnings and economic growth pushed major global indices to all-time highs. While the UK small cap indices were unable to scale new peaks in 2017, the mood of general investor bullishness did not elude them, with annual gains of well over 20%. This was reflected in a solid year o

The company now has a pipeline of 2.5GWh with 2GWh of that in new geographies and 160MWh of that under exclusivity. With these opportunities in mind the company has announced a placing at 107p.

NextEnergy’s JV with storage specialist Eelpower is an important strategic development. Storage demand is set to grow if the UK is to move towards its net zero targets and the combined attributes of the JV partners make it well suited to succeed here. For NESF it opens up a new route to asset growth in our view.
NextEnergy Solar Fund (NESF), which has the ability to invest up to 10% of its gross assets in energy storage, has announced a significant step into energy storage with the establishment of a £100m joint venture partnership with one of the leading battery storage specialists, Eelpower Limited (Eelpower). The joint venture is owned 70% by NESF and 30% by Eelpower. The partnership has also announced the signing of its maiden acquisition, a 50MW standalone battery storage project, which is ready to
Today's in-line results illustrate the financial impact from restrictions upon face-to-face Insurance sales over the past 15 months. However, they heavily mask the strategic momentum underway across the Group. Since the lifting of restrictions from June, Insurance is exhibiting a strong and accelerating rebound in demand, which should mark an inflection point for policyholder numbers and restore premium income to pre-pandemic levels over the medium-term. We expect the Group's other product lines
