Solar and storage developer Amberside Energy has called on Black & Veatch to help develop an initial 2GW of solar and battery storage projects. The projects are expected to range in capacity from 20MW to 100MW across Great Britain.

As both a developer and asset optimiser, Amberside Energy’s innovative and forward-thinking approach to this major solar and storage portfolio comes at a pivotal time,” commented Robbie Gibson, Associate Vice President & UK Director, Black & Veatch.
