Empowering the UK solar transformation

Together, we are paving the way for solar to deliver 70GW by 2035 by enabling a bigger and better solar industry.

Solar Energy UK represents over 400+ member companies operating in the UK energy sector and beyond.

Solar energy’s exceptional synergies with energy storage, electric vehicles and smart grids means the industry works on the frontline of technology and system change to deliver net zero carbon emissions. Our incisive research, policy development and influence shapes policy and regulation, and drives market growth.

In partnership with key players across the value-chain, Solar Energy UK is working to five-fold increase the UK solar capacity to 70GW by 2035.
