Together, the professionals comprising the Grupo Alten management team have more than ten years of experience in designing, financing, commissioning and operating photovoltaic solar power plants in Spain, Italy and India. They have led the development and operation of more than fifty photovoltaic power plants in these countries with a capacity of more than 250 MWp  and an investment of 1.5 billion euros (315 million euros in equity and 1.185 billion euros managed along with more than 25 prestigious financial institutions).

Besides having more than 240 million euros of its own photovoltaic assets in its project portfolio, Grupo Alten is currently in a development and promotion phase with signed PPAs and a total of 13 photovoltaic power plants in six countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and Central America with a contracted capacity of more than 467 MW.

In addition, Grupo Alten has a developing pipeline of more than 1 GW in 15 countries in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa.

As part of its international expansion strategy, Grupo Alten continues to focus its business in the so-called “sun belt” comprised of countries in Central America, South America and Sub-Saharan Africa in order to become one of the main independent photovoltaic energy producers in the medium term.
