List of 3 large renewable energy investors in the UK
The United Kingdom is one of the most important players in the renewable energy market. Not only has the government set ambitious goals for the future of renewables in the power market, but also investments are as high as ever. The UK has invested heavily in research and development of new technologies and is considered a pioneer in many, for example for green hydrogen. The favorable location for renewable energy, with strong winds and a long coastline, makes the UK an ideal location for offshore wind farms, attracting investments from all over the world. Accordingly, the investment market in the UK is highly competitive – even nationally there is a large number of investors with great expertise. The following article presents three renewable energy investors based in the UK.
1. Lightsource BP (London)
Lightsource BP is one of the world’s largest renewable energy players and – as the name suggests – specialises in solar energy. As a project developer, the company is ranked third worldwide, and Lightsource BP, based in London, also acts as an international investor in multiple renewable energy projects.
2. Green Investment Group Limited (Edinburgh)
Green Investment Group Limited is part of the Macquarie Group and is also one of the most important players in the UK renewable energy market. Based in Edinburgh, the company has a diversified portfolio and invests in energy storage systems and even green hydrogen in addition to the more traditional assets (offshore and onshore) wind and solar. Since its foundation in 2012, the investor has been able to build up a project pipeline with a considerable 85GW.
3. Cubico Sustainable Investments (London)
Cubico Sustainable Investments is a globally active renewables company. As the name suggests, Cubico focuses on sustainable investments with a focus on onshore wind and solar energy projects. Founded in 2015, the company is based in London and operates mainly in Europe, Australia and the Americas.

Different types of green energy investors covered
Our list mainly includes three different types of renewable energy investors: asset- and investment-managers, utilities, and family offices. Asset managers are investing in the name of institutional investors and managing a renewables portfolio for their funds. That includes operating the portfolio, selling the energy through PPAs and on the free market, and acquiring new assets. Utilities are acquiring – and in some cases building on their own – renewable assets to ensure CO2-neutral and cheap energy supply for their customers. Family offices – the investment firms of high net worth families – recently started to invest in renewables and also to acquire wind and solar parks.
