Centrica Business Solutions operates across the UK and Ireland, Europe and North America and is at the forefront of the distributed energy market.

Through our acquisitions of market leading energy specialists ENER-G, Panoramic Power, REstore, Vista Solar, CES Energy and SmartWatt, we can provide the innovative thinking as well as the energy insights, optimisation and on-site generation solutions our customers need to achieve their goals.

In addition, we're building a 900MW portfolio of solar and battery storage assets over the next five years to help to transform the UK’s energy landscape. These investments will connect some of the country’s biggest businesses to zero-carbon solar energy; while using battery storage to help the grid manage the challenges of moving towards intermittent renewable energy generation.

Energy leadership

We have three areas of focus to drive innovation and different thinking within the distributed energy market.

New thinking
The energy landscape is changing, and more customers, employees and investors are demanding that companies take responsibility for their carbon emissions and work towards a low carbon future. Successful organisations are looking at how they can balance their financial and environmental requirements to become a sustainable business. We help our customers understand their energy opportunity, so power is no longer just a cost, but a strategic asset.
New technology
We provide end-to-end distributed energy solutions to power performance, resilience and long-term value for our customers. Changing views around cost and carbon footprint are leading to greater adoption of energy efficiency solutions such as LED lighting, insulation, heating and ventilation. These energy efficiency measures are providing a springboard for businesses to invest in smart energy technologies such as demand response, battery, energy management platforms and electric vehicles that enable energy optimisation and resilience.
New ways of working
Our changing world demands a new approach to energy. Built on our unique combination of people, products, technology and services, our approach delivers a long-term energy strategy and multi-year planning, focused on the overall business objectives. Our expertise and practical guidance across the energy lifecycle, from strategic development to implementation and ongoing maintenance, will help organisations deliver their business ambitions.

As a leading energy and services business, we can play a pivotal role in tackling climate change. We work closely with our customers to help them deliver their environmental sustainability goals.
