This marks Hive Energy’s latest progression towards its mission of creating transformational change for a cleaner future through the delivery of world-class solar projects.

The combined position of Hive Energy and Ethical Power in the market will allow Hive Energy to select the best assets for development & acquisition over the next five years. The partnership will be a key market player with involvement in over 2GW of projects in development and with tenders submitted to construct over 1.2GW of solar assets. The partnership between Hive and Ethical aims to build a sizeable portfolio of high-quality generating assets and secure long term PPAs for its asset portfolio.

Speaking of the partnership Giles Redpath, Hive Energy’s CEO, said:

“Hive Energy believe that renewable energy generation is the most important thing that is going to happen to our planet over the next 50 years. The acquisition of Ethical Power is an exciting milestone for Hive to transition a leading renewable energy business and deliver world-class solar projects to support the decarbonisation of our energy system and accelerate the transition to a green economy.”
