Information on methodology and/or basis

Renewables are the fastest-growing energy source in the world today and we estimate they could provide at least 15% of the global energy mix by 2040. As part of our commitment to a low carbon future, BP has formed a strategic partnership with Lightsource, Europe's largest solar development company.


Called Lightsource BP, the partnership is focusing on funding, developing and managing major solar projects and smart energy solutions around the world. It currently has operations in Europe, North Africa, Asia, Australia and the Americas.


Lightsource BP aims to play a vital role in shaping the future of global energy delivery by developing substantial solar capacity around the world, and we are working with Lightsource BP to expand its global presence.
