Foresight Solar Fund – executive interview

Published on 30 August 2022

Foresight Solar Fund (FSFL) is the largest solar investor listed in the UK by total net peak capacity of c 1.07GW (when operational). We believe that global and UK climate change policies will remain renewable energy friendly, creating further solar and battery storage growth opportunities for FSFL. FSFL provides investors with a covered, sustainable and growing dividend (even in 2020 amid depressed power prices). It is focused on further strengthening its dividend cover (1.21x in FY21, targeting a minimum of 1.5x in FY22) over the next four years. FSFL has recently secured further exclusive positions in ready-to-build battery storage projects totalling c 60MW and targeted for completion in the coming months. FSFL expects these to be accretive to portfolio NAV and target yields.

In this video, Ross Driver, director of Foresight Group, discusses trends in the solar and renewable energy industry, including the effects of inflation, power prices and the windfall tax on energy companies.
