One of the leading industrial and trading groups in the Nordic region invests in Alight (previously Eneo) to help build the company’s market leadership in solar power for large companies in Europe.
Stina Andersson, COO Axel Johnson:
“We want to invest in brilliant entrepreneurs in areas with underlying growth that fit Axel Johnson’s values and long-term perspective. We are happy to be able to back a team and a business with this investment that meets our criteria in such a fantastic way. We see that the service model for solar energy that Alight operates has grown rapidly in the US and we are convinced that together we can create a leading position when we make the corresponding growth journey in Europe.”

“It feels exciting and important to bring in a value-driven investor like Axel Johnson as an owner. Axel Johnson’s combination of driving entrepreneurship and growth combined with a distinct long-term approach will help us reach even more customers and drive renewal of the energy supply of European companies and organizations”.
