As the energy industry moves along the path to net zero, these installations are supplying a vital source of firm power to the electricity grid. We are delighted to have completed this acquisition which complements our growing portfolio as we head into the winter months.”Steven Hardman, Chief Operating Officer, Conrad Energy
