Alight opens Madrid office to support European expansion

Stockholm, Sweden, and Madrid, Spain, July 11, 2023 — Alight, a leading solar developer and independent power producer, is excited to announce that it is opening an office in Madrid to support the company’s European buildout. This is Alight’s second European office, complementing its headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden.

Office in Madrid, Spain

In November 2022, DIF Capital Partners invested €150 million in Alight to accelerate the development of its near-term pipeline of solar projects across Europe, and by 2030, Alight is set to have an installed capacity of at least 5 GW backed with solar power purchase agreements (PPAs). Opening an office in one of Europe’s most mature solar energy markets will allow the company to tap into Madrid’s skilled and knowledgeable talent pool to support the buildout.

Harald Överholm, CEO of Alight, says: “As a remote-first company, we believe work is what you do, not where you do it. With that said, we hear from our employees that they like to have an office to work from, so we’re pleased to open an office in Madrid, where many of our employees are clustered. We will need to recruit and retain the top talent in the industry to achieve our ambitious goals, and establishing a hub in Spain, one of Europe’s solar leaders, will support our recruitment and bolster our European expansion.”

Alight, which has about 70 employees, is currently hiring Client Executives, Project Managers and Development Engineers in the Madrid office, though positions can be fully remote.

Office address:

Paseo de La Habana, 9, 11, 28036 Madrid

By 2030, we’re set to have an installed capacity of at least 5 GW, paving the way for a more sustainable future. We’re also leading the industry on co-located battery storage, a key component of ensuring that grid stability copes with the solar roll-out.
