As the UK transitions to net zero, the energy generation mix will become increasingly dominated by intermittent renewables, promoting a greater need for flexibility within the energy system. Setting up new renewable assets, especially storage, is currently a long and often costly process.
Co-location – where multiple generation or storage assets share a single grid connection – can provide valuable cost and time savings. However, challenges remain, especially around price certainty and optimisation of the different assets. With an increasing number of co-located projects in the pipeline over the next decade, will co-location prove key to sustaining future investment in UK renewables? What are the routes to market available for future co-located projects?
This event, alongside an accompanying report written by Cornwall Insight in partnership with Weightmans, explores these and other questions.
The panelists are:
- Roberto Castiglioni, Ikigai Group
- Liam Kelly, Green Switch Capital
- Iona Penman, Arenko Group
- Nick Fothergill, Partner, Weightmans
- Matthew Chadwick, Lead Research Analyst, Cornwall Insight
- Dan Atzori, Research Partner, Cornwall Insight (chair)
