Groningen (The Netherlands) based renewable energy companies Solarfields and Soleila are joining forces. The cooperation between both companies creates an alliance with 110 employees who contribute to the realization of the energy transition.
Solar rooftop developer Soleila has been acquired by Solarfields and will continue to operate under its own brand name for the coming years. Gerben Smit, CEO of Solarfields: “Solarfields has a market leading position in the ground-mounted solar PV sector in the Netherlands. In the past two years we have also developed our own rooftop portfolio. We notice an increased societal demand to utilize roof surfaces to support the energy transition in the Netherlands. Soleila has a strong track record in the rooftop segment. Furthermore, Soleila is a company driven by commitment and professionalism. This fits well with Solarfields’ company culture, providing a promising outlook for the alliance.”
The acquisition of Soleila further strengthens both companies’ capabilities to offer solutions that customers demand. Smit: “It is not only about generating renewable power, our customers also demand a holistic approach to the energy transition. By combining both companies’ expertise in energy efficiency, power generation, energy storage and offtake solutions, we are able to provide our current and future customers with comprehensive offerings.”
The rooftop portfolio of the two businesses consists of 150 projects in total, with a capacity of c. 200 MWp. The joint objective for the next years is to develop, construct and operate a portfolio of 1,000 MWp – the equivalent of the power supply to 350,000 households. In 2022 alone, the combined businesses will invest 120 million euros in Dutch rooftop projects.
