Renewable infrastructure | A diversified approach

Renewable infrastructure assets continue to be deployed at pace across the UK as the country races to achieve net zero by 2050 and decarbonise the electricity system by 2035. Consequently, renewable electricity generation has increased fivefold since 2010.

The addition of new renewable energy assets to the grid however presents some challenges: varying electricity generation profiles between technologies, climate variability, balancing supply during peak periods, and fluctuating revenue generation profiles.

This insight looks at how these challenges can be mitigated using a diversified approach to renewable infrastructure, focusing on:

  1. Why ground-mount solar and onshore wind assets are an attractive investment opportunity in the UK at present.
  2. The role of battery energy storage systems (BESS) and why it is important in a diversified portfolio of renewable energy assets.
  3. The benefits of a diversified approach for investors.
