Alight is a leading Nordic solar developer and Independent Power Producer, co-founded in 2013 by Dr Harald Overholm, Richard Nicolin and Wilhelm Lowenhielm to usher in a new era of solar power to industrial and commercial businesses seeking to go greener. With an entirely subsidy-free business model, Alight develops and operates solar projects, onsite and offsite, across Europe. By 2030 Alight is set to have an installed capacity of at least 5 GW backed with solar Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs).
Alight is developing more than 1 GW of PPA-based projects across Sweden, with a further 170 MW under development across the rest of Europe. We are also leading the industry on co-located battery storage, a key component of ensuring that grid stability copes with the solar roll-out.
In 2021, Alight joined the United Nations Global Compact as part of its support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
