We are part of the Statkraft Group, a leading international hydropower company and Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy.
STATKRAFT AND BRYT ENERGY
In 2016, Statkraft partnered with MEA, experts in the UK energy retail industry. They combined their expertise to establish us, Bryt Energy, to offer British businesses zero carbon, 100% renewable electricity.
In 2020, we became 100% owned by Statkraft. With their 125 years of renewable experience, you can be sure we’re a reliable, secure and trusted electricity company.
STATKRAFT IN THE UK
Statkraft has invested £1.4 billion in the UK’s renewable energy infrastructure since 2006. From onshore wind farms in Scotland and solar projects in England, to hydropower stations in Wales, Statkraft are harnessing natural resources to bring renewable electricity to homes and businesses.
Statkraft is a leading provider of long-term power purchase agreements in the UK, and they also trade a wide range of renewable energy certificates. Alongside this, Statkraft help to maximise the value of grid-scale batteries and flexible generation, with their route-to-market services.
Also part of the Statkraft group, Mer is a European EV charging company, active in the UK, Norway, Germany, Sweden and Austria. In the UK, they offer public EV charging infrastructure, along with workplace and fleet charging for businesses.
Over 125 years of renewable experience
In Norway, the late 1800s were characterised by heavy investment in hydropower, with waterfalls being purchased and power plants rapidly developed.
LARGE SCALE DEVELOPMENT
Following World War II, economic reconstruction of Norway began, with large-scale hydropower plants being a key development.
This period became a time of increasing environmental awareness and led to broader discussions around development and conservation.
TRADING AND NEW POWER MARKETS
During this decade, Statkraft opened its very first office for power trading. Alongside this, they continued to expand across Europe through significant acquisitions.
2000 – 2005
EXPANSION AND INVESTMENT
Entering the new millennium, Statkraft continued to focus its attention on investing in renewable generation, with the ambition to become Europe’s leading renewable energy company.
2005 – 2015
During this time, Statkraft made its international breakthrough and became Europe’s largest generator of renewable energy. Operating in the UK from 2006, they’ve since invested £1.4 billion in the UK’s renewable energy infrastructure.
2015 – ONWARDS
LEADING THE TRANSITION TO RENEWABLE ENERGY
For many years, Statkraft has used the position as Europe’s leading renewable energy generator to demonstrate its commitment to powering a cleaner future. They’ve invested 100% of its growth into renewables and took on a leading role in the shift to renewable energy.
