Alternus Energy is an Irish incorporated company lead by the CEO, Vincent Browne. Vincent’s ambition and entrepreneurial drive has taken Alternus from a small solar park operator to a pan-European vertically integrated Independent Power Producer (IPP). Alternus began operations with the acquisition of two Romanian solar PV parks with a total capacity of 6.1 MWp in 2016. Over the 4-year period from 2016 to 2020, the company began acquiring small to medium size solar PV parks across Europe that connect directly to national power grids on long-term government contracts (“FiT”) and/or Power Purchase Agreements (“PPAs”) with investment grade off-takers. The current portfolio consists of 34 owned or contracted parks across Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Romania and Poland, in excess of 150 MWp capacity. Alternus works closely with both local and international specialist development partners that each provide a constant pipeline of new projects for acquisition and construction by Alternus. Alternus aims to own and operate over 3.5 GWs of solar parks by the end of 2025 and to become one of the largest pan-European IPPs by the end of the decade.
