/STOCKHOLM, July 20, 2023, 08:05 CET, Vattenfall/ Vattenfall has acquired the German solar developer Solizer. The transaction includes an experienced team and a pipeline of large-scale solar projects in Germany with a volume of 4 GW. This acquisition expands Vattenfall’s German solar development portfolio to 7 GW in total. The first projects from the new portfolio can be ready for construction as early as 2024.
Vattenfall wants to enable fossil-free living within one generation. The expansion of electricity generation from solar supports this goal. Helene Biström, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Wind, stresses the importance of this acquisition: “Germany is a core market for Vattenfall’s solar development. Solar is cost-competitive and can be built subsidy-free, which is important in meeting the rapidly increasing demand for low-cost solar power from customers. By adding Solizer's development projects and know-how to our portfolio we continue on our renewables growth path.”
Solar power plays an essential role in the energy system, from small household installations to large-scale projects. In recent years the cost of solar panels has dropped significantly, and they are now among the cheapest forms of electricity generation. Due to decreasing costs and low CO2 emissions, volumes of solar panels will continue to grow in Vattenfall’s core markets. Large-scale solar farms will play a pivotal role in transforming Europe’s energy system.
Vattenfall is one of Europe’s largest producers and retailers of electricity and heat. Vattenfall’s main markets are Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, and the UK. The Vattenfall Group has approximately 20,000 employees. The parent company, Vattenfall AB, is 100% owned by the Swedish state, and its headquarters are in Solna, Sweden.
