About Us

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. The 50 companies in the group employ nearly 25,000 people.

EPH is the largest supplier of heat in the Czech Republic, the biggest electricity producer and the second biggest electricity distributor and supplier in Slovakia and ranks as the second biggest lignite producer in Germany. It is also an operator of a robust transmission network in Europe, a key transporter of Russian natural gas to Europe and the biggest gas distributor in Slovakia. In total it has 22 GW of heat and power capacity including coal, lignite and renewables. 

EPH entered the UK market in 2015 through the purchase of Eggborough Power Limited, an independent power generator which owns and operates a 2,000 MW coal-fired power station in Yorkshire. In 2016, EPH purchased Lynemouth Power Limited, the owner and operator of a 420 MW coal-fired power station in Northumberland. Lynemouth holds a Contract for Difference for full biomass conversion. EPH is progressing with the biomass conversion project and it is anticipated that this will commission in autumn 2017. In September 2017 EPH acquired Langage and South Humber Bank combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power stations from Centrica plc, with a combined capacity of 2.3GW. EPUKI continues to actively pursue other acquisitions and new build opportunities in the UK electricity market.
