Renewable Connections and European Energy UK have sold two ‘shovel-ready’ Scottish co-located solar and battery storage projects. The two sites, one at Strathruddie Farm and one at Montreathmont Moor, have an aggregate combined capacity of 121MWdc (67MWac). The buyer of the two projects was EVC Kilt, part of EVC Energy, a renewable energy development platform focused on developing and constructing solar PV and BESS projects in Greece and the UK with a current pipeline of 1.5GW. Both projects, which have been developed by Renewable Connections in partnership with European Energy UK, were consented in 2022. Michael Hughes, Director at Renewable Connections said: “Working closely with European Energy UK we have built an outstanding record of developing and achieving consent for our renewable energy projects.
“We deliver highly innovative developments and take a responsible, community-led approach to planning and design. As well achieving an outstanding record of project consents to date, it also means we deliver projects which appeal to investors such as EVC Energy and our existing co-development project partners. “Adam Spearey, Director at European Energy UK, added: “It is pleasing to see investor interest in these projects. The joint decision to sell them was in part driven by the unprecedented success Renewable Connections has achieved in consenting solar and storage projects over the last 12 months, with over 500MW of projects consented under our prosperous partnership to date.”
