Peel Energy

Peel Energy is at the forefront of delivering low carbon energy for the UK.

We have a balanced portfolio of more than 3GW in generation or development including wind, tidal power, biomass and multi-fuel power plants with carbon capture and storage.

That's enough to power the average electricity needs of 3 million homes in North West England. Or put another way, that's enough for every home in the city regions of Glasgow, Liverpool and Manchester combined.

With a heritage of supporting low-carbon energy projects over the last 20 years, we have the determination and expertise to develop, build and operate low-carbon projects across the country.

Peel Energy is part of the Peel Group, a leading real estate, transport and infrastructure investment company with assets under management of £6bn, employing some 5,000 people.
