Octopus Renewables was set up in 2010 as the specialist renewable energy investment business within the Investment Manager based on the belief that investors can play a vital role in helping to avert climate change. Octopus Renewables’ mission is simple: accelerate the transition to a clean energy future through unblocking investment into climate saving assets.
Octopus Renewables is now one of the largest renewable energy investors in the UK with assets under management valued at c.£3 billion. Of those investments c.£1.7 billion has been invested in solar and wind assets at construction stage (of which c.£1.2 billion is now operational with another c.£480 million currently in construction). Octopus Renewables manages on behalf of its clients the largest portfolio of investor owned solar PV parks in Europe. (All data at 30th June 2019)
