Modo selects - Shining a light on solar with Ross Grier

For today’s Modo Selects - we are looking back at this episode from summer ‘22 with Ross Grier from Next Energy Capital.

Solar energy is a huge player in the journey to net zero - and it turns out that Great Britain is an excellent place to deploy this technology! There’s far more than meets the eye to this often seemingly passive energy producer. In this episode, Ross Grier (Managing Director at NextEnergy Capital) chats to Quentin about the following topics:

  • Ross’s story and an intro to NextEnergy Capital.
  • How solar markets work and a look into investments.
  • Insight into the problems solar technologies face and these are being tackled to make solar as efficient as possible.
  • The importance of ensuring solar ROC’s are accurately green.
  • How NextEnergy is combining a 50MW battery with its new solar park and retrofitting existing sites to include storage.
  • And of course, how NextEnergy fits into this.
