Building the world’s leading renewable energy business

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 2.8 Gigawatts, and last year we generated enough energy to power Greater Manchester.
