ABOUT US

What we do

Cambridge Energy Partners is a solar company that makes energy simple and flexible. As a solutions provider and manufacturer, we partner with vetted companies to provide reliable solar energy solutions – reducing cost, risk, and complexity along the way.

Our expertise is in challenging projects, where scale, installation cost, or length of project issues impact project economics.

Combining our Nomad technology and our world-class partners, we can offer what others can’t – very low energy costs in a wide range of circumstances.

At Cambridge Energy Partners we design and manufacture redeployable single-axis solar trackers – tailored for use in tough, often remote conditions.

Our products are designed to ensure the production of affordable and reliable alternative energy. We help customers achieve the lowest levelised cost of energy when installation costs are high or when the project life is short.

OUR MISSION

 

We believe that universal access to secure, clean and affordable energy is essential to the future of humankind, and that harnessing the sun’s energy is the most viable option for delivering affordable and clean power solutions.

Our mission is to significantly contribute to the widespread adoption of secure and affordable solar energy by helping our customers to implement versatile and low-cost power solutions.

OUR GOALS

 

We use our experience and technology to facilitate the development and delivery of solar projects where installation costs are high, logistics are complex, or project life is short.

Our commitment to

safety

We take the safety of our employees and the people we work with seriously.

Our commitment to safety means that:

  • We will ensure that our products are safe and comply with the relevant standards.
  • We will always speak up when we observe unsafe work or faulty products.
  • We will respect and observe all our customer’s safety requirements.
  • All stakeholders, internal or external, have the right to refuse or stop any unsafe work until their concerns are addressed.

Our commitment to working

ethically

We apply the highest ethical standard when undertaking our work, and will act in accordance with CEP’s ethical guidelines including CEP’s anti-bribery policy.

Our commitment to 

sustainability

Our focus on the full system lifecycle lowers costs and eliminates waste over the 25-year life of our equipment.  By applying circular economy principles, we save and reuse resources as much as possible. 

CEP packs up the units and send them for refurbishment or recycling, reducing its impact on the environment.

THE TEAM

Based in the historic town of Cambridge, the team at Cambridge Energy Partners are dedicated to taking clean solar energy to new frontiers.

Our innovative culture and breadth of experience enables us to help our customers realise complex solar projects. We believe solar can and should be used everywhere.
