Gloucestershire-based Enso Energy, which describes itself as one of the UK’s most experienced renewable energy developers, has announced it will be staying in the county after outgrowing its headquarters in Dursley.
According to the business, which was founded in 2015 and has delivered more than 1,500 megawatts of energy projects nationwide, its partnership with the UK-based solar energy developer, Cero Generation, has played an important part in driving its recent growth.
The partnership, launched in 2021, has resulted in the Gloucestershire firm developing a pipeline of solar and battery storage projects across the UK, in excess of two gigawatts (GW).
Andrew King, managing director of Enso, said: ‘We are committed to accelerating the transition to green energy in the UK and have ambitious growth plans with a strong pipeline of future sites both in the planning process and in development.
‘To support this expansion, we need to upscale our team and establish a more modern head office.’
Enso, which currently employs 20 staff, has signed a 10-year lease on 4,538 square feet of office space at Cirencester Office Park.
Its last annual reports show turnover grew from £993,582 in 2020 to £1,287,920 in 2021. Since then, it has added a further eight staff to its books.
Cero was launched by Macquarie Asset Management’s Green Investment Group (GIG) in 2021 as a stand-alone specialist energy business to look after its European solar portfolio portfolio, which at the time numbered more than 150 projects responsible for eight GW.
