Our Story

Sun.en Capital Oü is a Solar PV development investment partner with a strong track record in delivering value to our clients and partners. Our dynamics go further than that. We are a company built on resilience and clear line of sight. The resilience to develop and invest in highly competitive markets to become a significant player in low Solar PV LCOE, thereby assisting with the energy transition towards a low carbon footprint. The clarity in our line of sight to only develop and hold assets in unsubsidized markets, where we compete in market-based electricity segments, and where Solar PV, as a distributed generation solution, enhances grid stability and favorably competes against conventional and other renewable technologies.  

With our extensive expertise in power generation, we have the agility and knowledge to develop opportunities others find difficult to structure and execute, delivering greater value to our clients, developers, and investors.

What we do

Because there’s more than one way to peel an orange, we leverage our experience to find astute ways to fund and structure development.
By developing, building and operating photovoltaic plants in unsubsidized environments, we deploy the skills and agility of a project developer as well as the long-term vision of an independent investor in the production of electricity from renewable energy sources.

1

Build Capacity

We are specifically targeting less than 50MWp projects, in the vicinity of viable load centres, with significant irradiance factors.

2

Develop Partnerships

We either develop on a stand alone basis or create development partnerships with local developers, as we believe this is where significant dislocations prevail and give rise to momentous efficiency gains.

3

Deliver Impact

We deliver measurable impact towards the EU’s energy transition, and our clients and partners. We strongly believe that our development and structuring track record accelerates projects development cycles, and provides an attractive investment yield to our clients.
