Low Carbon connects 42MW of new solar capacity to the grid in the UK and Europe

Key milestone reached for Low Carbon’s 1GW portfolio of UK and Dutch solar as a further three projects come online

Monday 11 December 2023 - Global renewable energy company Low Carbon has announced that it has successfully connected 42MW of new solar capacity to the grid in the UK and the Netherlands.

The three solar farms are the latest projects to reach this key milestone as the company scales up to create 20GW of new renewable energy capacity by 2030.

Low Carbon’s St Clere’s Solar Farm in Essex will produce 23MW of clean energy and is their second UK project to energise following the Fox Covert Solar Farm in Buckinghamshire announced in October.

The two Dutch projects located in the province of Utrecht, Wijkerbroek East and Wijkerbroek West, are the latest installment of more than 120MW of Dutch solar that is expected to come online by early 2024. The projects have a capacity of 10MW and 9MW respectively and have been developed by LC Energy, Low Carbon’s joint venture with engineering firm Qing and one of the leading renewables developers in the Netherlands.
