Utilities

The sector faces an enormous investment challenge over the next decade. It needs to deliver critical generation and infrastructure capacity, operating in an increasingly strict, low-carbon framework. Emissions regulation costs and increased oversight of capital expenditure plans bring further complications. Our specialist teams can help you to face these challenges and put together an intelligent and sustainable investment plan.

Renewable energy

The renewables sector is set for strong growth. The UK government has set a target of 15% energy production from renewable sources by 2020. The capital investment needed to support this ambition is vast.

Our team has extensive sector experience. Over the past four years we’ve provided finance for more than 40 projects, which together invested capital of £2.5 billion in the sector. The UK is moving towards a low carbon economy – our experience and financial capabilities can help you manage that transition over the long term.
