Amber Solar Power Limited

About Amber Fusion

At Amber, we are more than just a company; we are a catalyst for change. Our purpose is rooted in providing clean, solar-powered energy solutions and cutting-edge EV charging stations. By integrating ourselves within local communities, Amber is not just driving the future of transportation but also nurturing the well-being and prosperity of the communities we serve.

About Amber Solar

The business, originally established in 2017 as F&K Renewables Limited (FKR), has evolved and rebranded to become Amber Fusion Limited. Despite the change in name, our core mission and values remain steadfast. We have grown to be one of the few companies adept at providing financial and industry clarity amidst the complexities of today’s and tomorrow’s energy and housing markets.

Our substantial majority shareholder, previously under Fearnley & Kinde Limited during our FKR era, continues to be a pillar of support in our growth and development.

Amber Fusion Limited, carrying forward the legacy of FKR, is headquartered in London, England. We maintain a global presence with associated offices in the USA, the Far East, and Africa. Our enduring joint venture with Noble Tree Foundation (NTF), a charity dedicated to helping vulnerable groups find housing and support for an independent, successful life, remains a significant part of our operation.

This partnership not only aligns with our social responsibility goals but also provides us access to rooftops for Solar PV Systems, Solar Thermal Systems, EV Charging Points, and Battery Storage installations.
