RenewableUK members are building our future energy system, powered by clean electricity.
We bring them together to deliver that future faster; a future which is better for industry, bill payers, and the environment. We support over 400 member companies to ensure increasing amounts of renewable electricity are deployed across the UK and access markets to export all over the world. Our members are business leaders, technology innovators, and expert thinkers from right across industry.
Our priority is to make sure that it is RenewableUK members at the heart of delivering this UK opportunity. To do this provide them with the highest possible quality services and information, supporting them in any way we can to do more, and better business.
Collectively our members employ over 250,000 people - from international energy companies to small companies keen to build new markets and ready to disrupt our energy market with new products and services. The UK has some of the best natural resources in the world for these technologies. Renewables have proven their ability to deliver, and alongside gas and nuclear will be central to keeping the lights on and powering our economy. Our role is to maximise this opportunity and create the conditions that will see the renewable sector continue to thrive here. To help us achieve this, we are focusing on;
Onshore wind - our low cost route to energy security
Offshore wind - the UK opportunity
Wave & tidal - Britain’s place in the ocean energy race
Our future energy system - how red tape is hurting consumers and stifling innovation
Energy storage – the here and now of building a smart resilient network
