EP UK Investments (EPUKI) is a UK energy company, primarily focusing on power generation from conventional and renewable sources.

EPUKI represents the UK interests of Energetický a průmyslový holding (EPH), a leading Central European energy group that owns and operates assets in the Czech Republic, the Slovak Republic, Germany, Italy, the UK and Hungary. EPH is a vertically integrated energy utility covering the complete value chain ranging from highly efficient cogeneration, power generation, and natural gas transmission, gas storage, gas and electricity distribution and supply. EPH is the 6th largest producer of power in Europe, employing over 25,000 team members.

EPH entered the UK market through the creation of EPUKI which purchased Eggborough Power Limited (EPL) in 2015. From this platform, EPUKI has continued to grow.

EPUKI was granted planning consent for an Energy Recovery Centre located on land adjacent to the South Humber Bank CCGT.

 

EPUKI acquired the 708 MW Ballylumford gas-fired power plant and the 701 MW Kilroot coal and oil-fired power plant, as well as the 10 MW Kilroot Energy Storage facility.  This represents the first EPUKI acquisition within the energy market of Northern Ireland.
