About Low Carbon

Founded in 2011, Low Carbon is a market leading privately-owned UK investment and asset management company specialising in renewable energy.

We are committed to having a lasting and positive impact on climate change. In practice this means responsible and innovative investment in renewable energy projects, a commitment to protecting the earth's natural resources and dedication to creating a low carbon future for us all. To this end, we have established our own target of achieving net zero by 2030.

We specifically target investments in large-scale renewable energy projects. We specifically target investments in solar, onshore wind, waste-to-energy, battery storage and other proven renewable energy technologies. Deploying capital at scale into renewables, we invest across the full life cycle from concept through to development, construction and operation.

In 2021 we formed a strategic partnership with the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) to build a leading global renewable energy Independent Power Producer (IPP) targeting 20GW of renewable energy capacity by 2030.

Our ambition is to transform the global energy sector from fossil fuel based to zero-carbon. In partnership together we will work to accelerate the deployment of large-scale renewable energy by harnessing our expertise across the full investment life cycle and leveraging our proven track record in:

  • The deployment of more than £600m capital into large scale renewable energy projects
  • Financing, development and exit of more than 1GW clean energy projects
  • Proprietary development of an international pipeline of more than 5GW - enough to power more than 1.3 million homes*
  • A leading portfolio of UK subsidy-free solar with more than 2GW in development.
* Low Carbon internal calculations using OFGEM Typical Domestic Consumption Values and BEIS Carbon Conversion Factors.
