Energising a cleaner future

At Exagen, we are building the next generation of utility scale solar farms co-located with grid-balancing battery storage facilities.

We take an integrated approach to pairing solar farms with battery systems, which enhances our value proposition. This is achieved by balancing revenue from solar exports whilst exploiting battery flexibility services.

A robust platform

Our platform is a build, own and operate model underpinned by our in-house proprietary software. This streamlines the development process at each stage, reduces risk and ultimately boosts project returns.

The power of partnership

Our partnership ethos is built on trust and developing stakeholder relationships, taking the time to understand and accommodate their objectives or concerns. By forging strong partnerships with landowners and local communities, we develop and build projects around their needs.

We prioritise and focus our resources on a select number of projects each year, enabling us to plan our projects smoothly, from origination through to operation.

Capability

We have the capacity to construct over 400MW of solar and battery projects annually, backed by Power Purchase Agreements. This enables us to deliver predictable long-term revenues.

Our experienced team is passionate about the ongoing energy transition to renewables and the positive impact it will have on the environment. Collectively in our former roles, we’ve raised over £1 billion to fund renewable projects and have been responsible for developing, constructing and operating circa 5GW of renewable generation assets.
