Ethical Power Development Ltd, part of the Ethical Power Group, has acquired the development business of Public Power Solutions (PPS), including a pipeline of solar and energy storage projects with a potential capacity of over 250MW. 

Following a collaborative history between the two companies dating from July 2021, Ethical Power Development Ltd has said that the acquisition “strengthens Ethical Power Group’s international capability for solar PV and battery energy storage systems development (BESS).”

Spencer Jansen, managing director of Ethical Power Development, added: “This is an important milestone supporting further expansion of the business and will allow us to streamline project developments both in the UK and internationally.” 

PPS’ director of power solutions, Steve Cairns said, “PPS and Ethical Power already share a common commitment to deliver clean energy projects which help tackle the climate crisis and boost the UK’s energy security while delivering long term benefits for local communities. This exciting next step is a natural evolution of our existing partnership providing a sustainable basis for future growth.” 

Last Summer, PPS comissioned a 500kW lithium-ion battery project in Swindon.
