Octopus Renewables

Accelerating towards a clean energy future

Since entering the renewables market in 2010, Octopus Renewables has grown to become the largest investor of solar power in Europe, as well as growing to become a leading investor in onshore wind. We currently manage a global portfolio of renewable energy assets valued at more than £3 billion. 


This has created a portfolio of clean energy assets with a combined capacity of 2.5 GigaWatts, producing enough electricity to power homes in a city the size of Manchester.

Our portfolio in numbers


GWh potential portfolio production at maximum capacity


equivalent UK homes will be powered annually once fully constructed


tonnes of carbon avoided per year


trees required to absorb carbon avoided by our portfolio in a year

Portfolio data based on calculated assumptions over twelve months as at May 2020. The total Portfolio includes the production potential of both our operational and construction assets over a 12 month period.

The carbon avoided was calculated using the International Financial Institution’s approach for harmonised greenhouse gas accounting. References for carbon equivalent calculations are available on request.
