Centrus cooks up a storm at Blackfriars Settlement

This week, our team spent the day volunteering at Blackfriars Settlement – cooking and serving lunch to their wonderful Positive Ageing Group.

Blackfriars Settlement is a busy community organisation in London’s North Southwark. Originally set up by volunteers back in 1887, the centre aims to support the most vulnerable in the community and make life better.

Thank you to the Blackfriars Settlement community for a fantastic day! For more information on how to get involved, click here.

Centrus confirmed as keynote speaker at UK Renewables Academy

Keynote speaker at ‘Introduction to Offshore Wind’

We are pleased to announce that Centrus will be the keynote speaker covering offshore wind financing and investment for the UK Renewables Academy’s four day offshore wind programme in September 2023.

“Understanding the principals about how windfarms are financed, bought and sold is critical to understanding the life cycle of a windfarm. This topic is gaining increasing importance as farms get bigger and more expensive. Securing an adviser of Centrus’ quality and experience in this area is an exciting development for the UK Renewables Academy.

Centrus’ insight will no doubt make for an extremely interesting seminar and we look forward to welcoming Centrus to Teesside University in September.”

Liam McIvor, Director – UK Renewables

“We are delighted to be involved in a programme focused on increasing knowledge and understanding around the renewables and offshore sector.

Our work with Ofgem, advising on £5 billion of recent and ongoing Offshore Transmission Operator (“OFTO”) sale processes, has given us a unique insight into how the UK can achieve its targets of 50GW of offshore wind by 2030.

As a certified B Corporation, Centrus is passionate about delivering solutions for a sustainable future, securing energy resilience and funding the energy transition to net zero”.

Adam MacDonald, Managing Director – Centrus

The course has been specifically designed and developed alongside leading industry professionals to give participants an understanding to every area of the sector. The course is also applicable to those who are experienced in one particular area and want to have a better understanding of the wider industry.
