Solar developer Alight receives EUR 150 million investment from DIF Capital Partners

DIF Capital Partners will acquire a majority stake in Stockholm-headquartered Alight, a leading developer of subsidy-free solar projects in the Nordics. The agreement includes an investment of EUR 150 million and a secondary buy-out of a number of existing shareholders. With the capital raised, Alight will accelerate the buildout of its near term pipeline of solar projects.

The company will do so by building out and retaining ownership of projects going forward and aiding the transition into an independent power producer. Alight built its foundation in the Nordic solar market by offering solar power purchase agreements (PPAs) to major commercial and industrial (C&I) power users, and has developed several of Sweden’s largest solar parks in addition to delivering multiple onsite solar solutions. The investment will enable Alight to accelerate its build-out of new solar projects in the Nordics and more broadly across Europe.

Nine years on from its founding in 2013, Alight is now a leader in Europe’s commercial solar roll-out through its subsidy-free approach to solar PPAs.

Mannheimer Swartling advised Alight AB.
