About GreenGo Energy Group:

GreenGo’s 360 full services business model includes origination, development, engineering, construction, operations & maintenance and asset management services for project investors, our clients, tailored to the client’s needs and investment profile.

Strategic focus is transaction models that keep solar assets off balance sheet through early stage transactions in the project development cycle and, in this process, secures full cycle financing from our clients.

This differentiated partnership model with clients lowers GreenGo’s overall risk profile and ensures a highly scalable growth platform, as the funding needs over own balance sheet are limited. GreenGo revenue streams are created by milestone fee payments throughout the development and construction cycle and through the clients funding GreenGo’s internal development costs and overheads.

Typically, GreenGo develops through a 250-1,500 MWp portfolio approach per portfolio transaction, ensuring scale, diversification of risk and investment size fit for the our clients. Investor commitments through this portfolio approach are generally between EUR 150m and EUR 900m.

GreenGo has more than 7GWp of solar and storage projects in various stages of development in selected U.S. states and Northern Europe, of which more than 2GWp has achieved full cycle financing through partnership agreements.

The paradigm going forward is the subsidy fee solar and storage solutions, zero subsidy solutions that do not rely on government subsidies or incentives.
