Our story

Powering a brighter future

At Alight, we’re on a mission to kick carbon off the grid by helping energy-intensive businesses switch to solar. We develop, own and operate onsite and offsite solar projects across Europe and sell the clean energy to businesses at a low, fixed cost backed by a power purchase agreement (PPA), always independent of government funding or subsidies. By 2030, we aim to have an installed capacity of at least 5 GW, paving the way for a more sustainable future.

Our history

In 2013, Alight was founded to help businesses decarbonize their operations and drive the transition to a clean energy future. Ten years later, we’re proud to have more than 50 solar projects under management or construction, totaling more than 100 MW, and a growing team of passionate Alighters.
