/LONDON, March 11, 2022, 10:00 GMT, NextEnergy Group/ NextEnergy Group, a leading player in the global solar sector, is pleased to introduce Starlight, a new company within the NextEnergy Group focused on renewable asset development globally. Since 2008 the NextEnergy Group has developed over 100 utility-scale solar plants with an installed capacity in excess of 2GW, significantly contributing to global climate change mitigation. Starlight has been established to capture, consolidate and rapidly expand the Group’s renewable energy project development experience and presence.
The Starlight will initially target and develop early-stage solar PV projects with a focus on key NextEnergy Group geographies where the team already has existing experience. Further plans include but are not limited to expansion into other jurisdictions and in energy storage, wind (both onshore and offshore) and green hydrogen projects. Starlight will benefit from the Group’s industry-leading ESG practices and quality assurance processes.
