Shell has suggested it will become the next major oil firm to enter the new build solar market after it was reported over the weekend that the Dutch giant plans to build solar farms in Britain.

Royal Dutch Shell has been making some moves in the solar market both in the UK, where it recently agreed a deal to become the sole off-taker of England’s largest solar farm, and globally.
Last month the oil and gas firm acquired a 43.83% interest stake in US solar developer Silicon Ranch Corporation to accelerate growth by developing new projects, entering new markets, and expanding product offerings.
