Renewable energy giant Statkraft has acquired UK headquartered Solarcentury for £117.7 million in a bid to accelerate its growth in the solar sector.

When this is combined with its own portfolio of projects, it will make Statkraft one of the leading developers in the European solar market. Solarcentury’s geographical footprint – with a project pipeline spanning high-growth markets like Spain, the Netherlands, the UK, France, Greece, Italy and Chile – is well aligned with Statkraft’s existing development portfolio and market operations.
