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 clients. Investor commitments through this portfolio approach are generally between EUR 150m and EUR 900m.

GreenGo has more than 7.5GWp of solar and storage projects in various stages of development in selected U.S. states and Northern Europe, of which more than 3GWp has achieved full cycle financing through partnership agreements.

Culture

The culture can be characterized as informal yet ambitious with a strong will to succeed and an ability to execute. Together with an agile and entrepreneurial mindset, these traits have been key elements in

GreenGo Energy’s success along with a strong commercial outlook. All employees are expected to take responsibility and lead efforts to completion. Furthermore, GreenGo has the ability to act quickly and take on profitable business opportunities in a creative way. Moreover, as part of an entrepreneurial and very dynamic organization, it is key to be self-motivated, self-driven and hands-on.

The future

The paradigm going forward is the subsidy fee solar and storage solutions, zero subsidy solutions that do not rely on government subsidies or incentives. Furthermore, to tab into the massively increasing appetite in renewable assets among institutional investors, i.e. infrastructure funds, renewable funds, pension funds etc.

This zero subsidy paradigm, essential for developing a sustainable and fully scalable growth platform, is well aligned with GreenGo’s highly scalable business model. We believe that we are at the right place at the right time, and that we have the experience, the platform and track record to tab into this opportunity at significant scale.
