Renewable energy generation to power a sustainable industrial vision.

The GFG Alliance is a fast growing developer and operator of renewable power in the UK and Australia.

Renewable power is at the heart of GFG Alliance’s activities as it looks to ensure a long term, stable and sustainable power source for industry. It is developing a wide portfolio of renewable assets in the UK and Australia.

The Alliance – through the SIMEC Group – already delivers low-carbon energy from hydro and biofuel sources for use in its own industrial activities and in the wider market, and will continue to drive the development of other green power sources and/or acquire additional generation capacity using technologies such as wind, hydro, pumped hydro, solar, battery storage and energy from waste.

Looking further into the future, GFG Alliance has invested in the development of tidal power, which will harness the energy of the tides in a programme that could deliver 8% of the UK’s electricity needs. The Alliance also has the capabilities for the manufacture of wind turbine towers and transmission line pylons and is looking to expand its renewable energy portfolio with the addition of other power assets.
