Foresight and Belltown Power partner in onshore wind venture

Foresight Group announced on 24 March that it has partnered with renewable energy investment platform manager Belltown Power to develop their pipeline of greenfield onshore wind energy projects across the UK.

The joint venture (JV) aims to deliver more than 300MW of capacity to sites predominantly in Scotland and Wales. They will be developed on a merchant-only, power purchase agreement or Contracts for Difference supported basis.

Matt Hammond, Partner at Foresight, said: “Investing for a smarter future means building out renewable energy projects that will help the UK meet its ambitious zero carbon targets. This JV with such an experienced developer as Belltown will accelerate that process, and we are looking forward to working with their dynamic and capable team.”
