How can I release value from my energy infrastructure?

The fast-changing energy landscape makes increasing demands on businesses to improve efficiency, increase resilience and find more sustainable ways of powering their operations. The integration of new technologies, such as electric vehicles, can require upgrades to your network, and that is expensive.

How we can help

We provide financing solutions that mean you can be certain about your infrastructure costs and performance, so you can focus on running your business and plan for the future with confidence. As an experienced, long-term infrastructure partner, we manage critical assets for major infrastructure in a number of sectors. We currently hold capital finance contracts ranging up to 90 years.

We can:

  • Fund a one-off capital investment and recover the cost over time.
  • Purchase your existing network to provide a cash injection.
  • Combine network renewal and ongoing maintenance into one fixed annual fee.

UK Power Networks Services is owned by the Cheung Kong Group. Drawing on the group’s financial strength, we own or invest in electrical networks across the UK. From public distribution networks worth more than £3 billion at one end of the scale, to science park networks worth £5 million at the other, all the networks in our financed portfolio are run efficiently and effectively using our industry-leading engineering and asset management expertise.

Our experience includes power networks for rail, underground, airport, commercial buildings and Ministry of Defence projects.

What this means for you

Financing enables you to release the value of your infrastructure, so you can reinvest in core activities or invest in new energy technologies. By spreading the capital costs of electrical infrastructure assets over time, you can clearly see your financing costs over the life of the contract.

As the owner of your assets for a fixed period, we ensure they are maintained and replaced when required to ensure you have a secure and resilient power supply. In short, we will optimise the replacement cycle of your existing assets. Finance solutions can significantly reduce your risk profile. By offering output-based performance contracts, the risk of power outages, asset performance, asset reliability and asset condition can be passed to us, enabling you to concentrate on your core business.

Whether you require battery storage, electric vehicle infrastructure, operation and maintenance or a new private distribution network, we can design and implement a unique investment and ownership structure, enabling you to leverage the value of your assets.
