Driving the green agenda and the transition to net zero
Celebrating 10 years
Anesco’s incredible journey began in 2010, when the UK’s renewables market was in its infancy. Less than a year after being incorporated, we had constructed the largest solar farm in Dorset.
In September 2014, Anesco made history by connecting the UK’s first utility scale battery storage unit, six months later going on to install the largest optimised solar farm in Europe. And by 2017 we had made history again by constructing the UK’s first subsidy-free solar farm.
Hailed as industry pioneers and with many high-profile projects and industry firsts under our belt, Anesco remains an industry-leader in the field of solar and energy storage.
We have also grown to become one of the largest providers of energy efficiency services under the governments ECO (Energy Company Obligation) scheme.
Anesco continues to develop, design, construct, operate and maintain high performing grid scale solutions, whilst being a trusted partner to large commercial clients and government departments for behind the meter projects.
Recent projects include a 56MW portfolio of three ground mount solar PV projects delivered for Shell New Energies, a division of Shell that invests in new and fast-growing segments of the energy industry
In 2021, on the cusp of a new wave of UK solar and storage investment, Anesco agreed a £100m solar partnership with Gresham House and won contracts to construct a 100MW of battery storage projects for Foresight.
In April 2022, as part of our plans for international expansion we launched Anesco Netherlands, operating from offices in Amsterdam. More recently, Anesco Germany, and the acquisition of renewables specialist, Aeos Energy, has marked a milestone moment in our history and has firmly cemented Anesco’s place in Europe.
A series of firsts:
- First to develop a subsidy free solar farm in the UK
- First to install utility scale battery storage in the UK
- First to retrofit battery storage to existing solar farms
- First to enter battery storage assets in the Balancing Mechanism
- First to transform the way ECO is delivered to ensure the lowest cost for the highest quality is achieved
Clayhill Subsidy Free Solar.
In September 2017, with the UK Minister for Climate Change & Industry in attendance, Anesco officially opened the UK’s first subsidy-free solar farm – a landmark achievement for the country’s renewables industry.
