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