Renewable Connections & European Energy UK buy solar-storage projects

April 20, 2023

UK solar and battery developer Renewable Connections and project partner European Energy UK have sold two “shovel-ready” co-located solar and battery storage projects based in Scotland – one at Strathruddie Farm and one at Montreathmont Moor – with an aggregate combined capacity of 121MWdc (67MWac).

The buyer of the two projects is EVC Kilt Limited, which is part of EVC Energy, a renewable energy development platform focused on developing and constructing solar PV and battery energy storage projects in Greece and the UK with a current pipeline of 1.5GW. 

EVC Energy is a joint venture between Elmya Energy and Valpre Capital that was launched in 2021.

Both projects, which have been developed by Renewable Connections in partnership with European Energy UK, were consented in 2022.  Once built the projects will generate enough clean green energy combined, to power around 19,000 homes.

Renewable Connections and European Energy UK were advised on the deal by law firm Burges Salmon, while Foot Anstey advised EVC Energy.
