The power of solar
Utility-scale solar power is a resilient, reliable and predictable solution to climate change and energy security. Our expertise and investment in solar means we’re changing power for our customers, as we reimagine energy for the world.
The future of energy: going beyond solar
Lightsource bp's in-house energy storage team is currently working on a 3GW pipeline of opportunities across three continents. Optimising energy storage will play a key role in sustainable solar, including faster, deeper and smarter decarbonisation of electricity grids, and diversification of revenue for projects. For our customers, it also means more stability and security of supply.
Co-location: wind and solar
Pairing solar and wind generation with energy storage is a powerful proposition. Wind and solar generate electricity at different hours and seasons. Combining them, along with storage, can maximise the grid capacity available. We’re exploring how these renewable hubs can speed deployment, bring more projects to fruition, and generate consistent flows of clean power.
