Centrica is to deploy 7GW of distributed, low carbon technologies over the next decade, with solar and battery storage set to play a crucial role. The utility giant established the target as part of its Responsible Business Ambitions (RBA) drive, which will support its United Nations-backed Sustainable Development Goals and wider sustainability initiatives. Centrica’s distributed energy and power business is to play a vital role in the deployment activity, which is to be split between customer solutions and Centrica-owned projects. The firm has already completed a 49MW battery storage facility at Roosecote and is entering the final installation stages for its Local Energy Marketplace in Cornwall, which will combine domestic and C&I solar and storage installations to create a peer-to-peer trading network.
