National Grid has, through its National Grid Ventures unit, launched National Grid Renewables, the new brand name for its US renewable energy business which includes solar, onshore wind and battery storage.
National Grid Renewables is focused on accelerating the clean energy transition through developing, owning, and operating large-scale renewable energy assets across the United States.
“National Grid has a critical role to play in the acceleration of a cleaner energy future, which is why we’re pleased to be launching National Grid Renewables to further underscore our commitment to reaching net-zero. In addition to being positive for our planet, developing new renewable energy projects creates jobs and spurs economic development in communities across America. We look forward to expanding our positive social and environmental impact as we look ahead, all while delivering strong shareholder value.”Daniel Westerman, president, Renewable Energy for National Grid.
This rollout builds on National Grid’s acquisition of Geronimo Energy, a wind and solar developer in North America.
“The launch of the National Grid Renewables brand supports our goal to expand our onshore project portfolio nationwide and continue our growth as a leader in the renewable energy industry. We are proud to take on the National Grid name, as our corporate values have always been and continue to be aligned. Our farmer-friendly, community-focused value set and guiding principle to do what is right for community members, customers, and partners remain the same.”Blake Nixon, head of US Onshore Renewables for National Grid Renewables.
