Zero-carbon energy generation sources will be supported by cutting-edge low-emission gas sources.
The Group’s energy assets include: 58 renewable-energy power plants, mainly across the hydro, solar PV and onshore wind farm segments. The wind power segment comprises 10 farms with a total installed capacity of 353 MW.
