Solarcentury is one of the largest developers of solar power plants in Europe and Latin America, with operations also in Africa. It is an integrated solar platform that develops, structures, finances, builds and operates solar parks around the world. It is the UK’s most experienced, and largest independent, solar energy company with over 180 staff operating from its headquarters in London and other offices around the world.
In November 2020 Statkraft, Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy, signed an agreement to acquire Solarcentury for a purchase price of £117.7 million. Together the companies are well positioned for accelerated growth in solar and to become one of the world’s leading renewable energy companies.
“Solarcentury has played a significant role in making solar power mainstream and we are delighted to have worked with the company’s management team in expanding the business internationally. We wish them continued success as they embark on their partnership with Statkraft and further accelerate the global deployment of solar energy.”
