Graduate Energy Engineer

Summary

Lower 48 Energy (L48) is a UK based BESS development platform. We are accelerating the clean energy transition by developing and deploying BESS assets at strategic locations in the UK.

Our vision is to develop and own a UK Battery Storage portfolio of 250 MW in the next 2-3 years, expanding into further European territories and delivering a capacity of 1GW of capacity in the next 5-7 years.

At the end of last year, Castleton Commodities International (CCI) acquired a majority stake in L48.

CCI is a leading global energy commodities merchant and infrastructure asset investor headquartered in Stamford, USA with European offices in London and Geneva.

L48 is constructing its first project, a 45 MW, 90 MWh in Preston, Lancashire with COD in Q2 2025 and is working on two more projects to start design in 2024.

L48’s organic pipeline is 800 MW in various stages of development.
