“This will provide MED with a steady flow of shovel ready sites, enabling it to rapidly build an initial portfolio of 100 MW reserve energy projects in the UK.

“We hope to replicate the success we have had with Bordersley, which, from its acquisition on 20 June 2019, is on track for commercial commissioning at the end of Q1 2020.

“This will see us utilise not only our partnership with Balance, but also our other partners including global player Statkraft Markets GmbH for power purchase agreements and AB Impianti S.R.L for plant development including the EPC and funding.

“MED is progressing at a tremendous pace; we are delighted to be on that journey with its team and look forward to 2020 with confidence.”
