Rubicon Advises Elgin Energy on the Sale of the UK’s Largest Portfolio of Solar PV Projects
Rubicon Capital Advisors (“Rubicon”), one of the world’s leading investment banking firms focused on the broader infrastructure, energy and digital sectors, announced its role as exclusive sell-side financial advisor to Elgin Energy Holdings (“Elgin”) in reaching completion on the 100% sale of a 519 MW portfolio of solar PV projects and 70 MW of co-located energy storage capacity (the “Portfolio”) to ScottishPower Renewables (UK) Limited (“Scottish Power”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of global utility Iberdrola Group.
The portfolio sale marks the UK’s largest solar PV transaction to date, consisting of 12 projects at the pre-construction stage located across England, Wales and Scotland, with a combined capacity of 519MW. The portfolio also includes a co-located 70MW battery solution that is at an advanced stage of development.
“We are delighted to have reached this significant milestone and partnered with Iberdrola / ScottishPower Renewables on this portfolio. We will continue to develop and deliver on our 5GW project pipeline across the UK, Ireland and Australia, working closely with landowners, local authorities and all related stakeholders”, commented Ronan Kilduff, CEO of Elgin Energy.
The portfolio will play a pivotal role in contributing towards the UK’s 2050 Net Zero Strategy, not only generating low cost and low carbon electricity but also creating significant regional economic development and supplying zero-carbon electricity to over 143,000 homes across the UK.
“We have a proven track record in working with global developers and large renewable energy portfolios of scale across the world and we are delighted to have advised on the UK’s largest solar and storage transaction to date. This is a landmark transaction on many fronts, representing a new frontier in the UK and internationally in terms of both scales and in combining solar PV and large-scale battery storage into a single asset portfolio. Moreover, this transaction is an excellent example of Rubicon’s commitment to be at the leading edge of ESG initiatives, particularly as they relate to tackling global climate change issues”, commented Barry O’Flynn, Managing Director at Rubicon.
