Powering Up the UK’s £22bn Solar Economy: Launching Metris Energy

By: Natasha Jones


We are thrilled to announce the launch of Metris Energy, the UK’s first end-to-end solar platform for commercial real estate, and the close of our £2 million funding round led by Octopus Ventures and Aenu VC to revolutionise how property owners assess, install, and monetise solar energy within their portfolios.

Our Vision

At Metris, we envision a world where businesses not only thrive but also contribute to a sustainable, greener future. Our mission is to turn every building into a green power plant and empower businesses with renewable energy solutions that propel growth and sustainability together.

The Green Building Challenge

Today, commercial real estate owners face a dual challenge: softening valuations and pressure to decarbonise. For green upgrades to reach scale in this segment, financial incentives and environmental benefits must be aligned.

Solar energy generation within the commercial property sector represents a £22 billion revenue opportunity for property owners. Yet the complex processes involved in the solar adoption journey – from portfolio assessment to solar installation and implementation of energy contracts with tenants – has historically prevented commercial property owners from realising their portfolio’s full solar potential. 

Metris is the first end-to-end platform created specifically to help commercial real estate owners overcome this hurdle and reap the rewards of solar energy adoption.

Key features

We make switching to solar as easy as flipping a switch. With Metris’ AI-powered platform, commercial property owners can easily leverage unused roof space to generate extra revenue and reduce building emissions by 70%, playing a crucial part in securing a greener, more prosperous future for the planet. 

  1. Instant Portfolio Assessment - Discover the solar energy potential of your portfolio, without spending thousands on consultants and completing hours of paperwork. Simply upload your property to our platform and get an assessment in seconds. 

  2. Turn Sunlight into Revenue - Generate CFO-ready business case and assess the revenue potential of selling power to tenants. 

  3. Installation Made Easy - Kick start installation on the platform. Our innovative technology uses automation to remove paperwork, and our team of in-house experts are on-hand to accompany you every step of the way.

  4. Power Your Future with Certainty - Tender the project out to our network of vetted commercial installers and choose a system that best suits your needs through our in-depth RFP process.

  5. Operations on Autopilot - Our asset management platform, MetrisOS, monitors the performance of the solar system, automates billing operations and provides sustainability insights.
