Who We Are

Sembcorp Energy UK

We are a leading provider of sustainable solutions supporting the UK’s transition to Net Zero.

With an energy generation and battery storage portfolio of nearly 1GW in operation, our expertise helps major energy users and suppliers improve their efficiency, profitability, and sustainability, while supporting the growth of renewables and strengthening the UK’s electricity system.

Our Wilton International site on Teesside sits within a hub of decarbonisation innovation. At the site, we provide energy-intensive industrial businesses with combined heat and power (CHP) via our private wire network that supplies electricity generated by gas and biomass.

These services are complemented by our fleet of fast-acting, decentralised power stations and battery storage sites situated throughout England and Wales. Monitored and controlled from our central operations facility in Solihull, these flexible assets deliver electricity to the national grid, helping to balance the UK energy system and ensure reliable power for homes and businesses.

We are an ethical business, playing our part in building a sustainable future and creating long-term value for our communities and stakeholders. We’re actively supporting the nation’s energy transition to Net-Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Our strategy is supported by our values:

our purpose, vision and five core values
