Distributed Energy

The UK’s shift towards a low, and ultimately zero, carbon energy system is driving a shift towards more small scale and decentralised heat and electricity generation.

This, combined with regulatory change around the allocation and recharging of grid costs creates both challenges and opportunities for large energy users and developers alike.

The wider distributed energy space incorporates both new and existing technologies such as energy storage; onsite generation; energy efficiency and control systems; and transport infrastructure such as electric vehicle charging.

QMPF can help clients unlock the benefits associated with these opportunities through addressing areas such as:

  • Energy usage volumes and profiles for both heat and electricity
  • Current energy mix
  • Risk appetite – both for energy price and asset ownership
  • Ability to fund new energy developments
  • Balance sheet constraints

QMPF has worked in this sector with organisation such as housing associations, councils and universities. In each case we have advised on developing business models, the associated opportunities, funding options and structures for the development of distributed energy projects.
