What Inspires Us
We are integrators, developers and investors in renewable energy infrastructure. Our strategy and efforts are based on the principles of energy decentralization, energy efficiency and the “decarbonization” of the economy. We know that our responsibility is to contribute to building a better world for future generations.
Our energy strategy began as the result of the combination of capital and experience, with the purpose of structuring, developing, and investing in solar energy projects and energy efficiency in countries where we recognize the need to diversify the energy matrix, as is the case of Colombia.
We believe that energy is a key factor in the development and growth of sustainable economies and societies, which is the reason why our focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions is aligned with the global challenges created by climate change.
It is a fact that the diversification towards renewable energy sources is a growing global trend. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, by the year 2040, approximately 60% of global energy capacity will come from energy sources with zero emissions.
And in Colombia, where hydroelectric resources generate approximately 70% of electric energy, the necessity to diversify the energy matrix and leverage the abundance of available solar resources is undeniable.
To facilitate the diversification of its energy matrix and to further promote the development and use of non-conventional sources of energy - mainly renewable sources – Colombia passed Law 1715.
Therefore, with a solid legal framework and abundant solar resources, why not choose solar energy?
In addition to potential monetary savings for those who implement a solar energy system, there are also environmental benefits. For example, calculations show that solar energy produced by a solar photovoltaic (PV) system of 100 kWp in Medellín would compensate for an average of 2,012 tons of CO2. * This is equivalent to:
* Estimates obtained from the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator (September 2017) from the installation of an average solar-energy system of 100 kWp with an energy yield of 1,444 kWh/kWp per year, downgraded by 0.7% annually over 20 years.
