VLC Energy intends to transform the energy storage and distributed power generation market in the UK. It is a joint venture company created by Low Carbon, and VPI Immingham, owner of one of the largest combined heat and power plants in Europe and part of the Vitol group. Our first projects to be developed include two of the UK’s largest operational energy storage plants in Cleator in Cumbria and Glassenbury in Kent.
As energy storage plants become more cost-effective, increasing levels of renewable energy sources, such as solar power and wind energy, may be integrated into the overall power mix helping to future-proof the UK’s evolving power network. VLC Energy is focussed on accelerating the long term development of the UK’s energy storage and distributed power market including renewable energy.
