From pioneering solar company to international developer

Founded in 1998, Solarcentury has been around since the early days of the solar industry. We've been part of the rapid evolution that has made solar PV a mainstream energy source that it is today. In sub-Sahara Africa, Solarcentury Africa is a market leader in the development of solar PV and storage projects using smart energy technology and controls. Its projects, partnerships and technologies generate clean power for investors, businesses and communities.

Global coverage

A selection of some of our projects spanning the globe.

  • Experience

Chile combines some of the best solar resources in the world with a government committed to the energy transition.
Solarcentury built the 40 MWp Doña Carmen project in 2017 bringing clean energy for the equivalent of 21,000 homes each year.

Our East Africa projects showcase our African experience, knowledge and expertise across a range of solar applications, including pioneering hybrid and off-grid systems.

Germany has led the way in the energy transition. The volume of solar built in Germany seeded many other markets and dramatically reduced costs for all.
In recent years, Solarcentury has built a number of ground-mount systems on brownfield land.

The Spanish Government has announced ambitious targets to adopt renewables in a country where solar makes perfect sense.
With experience in-country since 2007, Solarcentury has more recently completed development on the 500 MWp Talayuela and Cabrera Solar projects.

Italia cuenta es un excelente mercado libre de subsidios con una alta demanda de compradores de energía dado su tejido industrial.

Los primeros proyectos fotovoltaicos de Solarcentury fueron en Italia. Mas de diez años después contamos con una creciente cartera de proyectos que superan los 325 MWp.

Italy is an excellent market for subsidy-free solar projects with a high demand from offtakers given the manufacturing base.
Solarcentury’s first ground-mounted solar projects were in Italy over ten years ago.

Demand for clean, green electricity continues to grow in Mexico to support its expanding manufacturing base.
With operations here since 2014, Solarcentury has developed 224 MWp. Projects are large, averaging more than 130 MWp each, providing a real opportunity for local employment.

Solar has proven a logical backup in Panama when in dry seasons hyrdroelectric power is limited.
Divisa Solar – built in 2016, was Solarcentury’s first utility-scale project in Latin America.

Solarcentury has been active in South Africa since 2013, originally focused on rooftop projects. More recently, developing ground-mounted projects, especially in the mining industry, is the focus of our pipeline.

The Netherlands has a robust market for utility-scale solar supported by the SDE+ subsidy.
With an established team here since 2012, Solarcentury has recently developed 188 MWp.

The UK is home to Solarcentury’s most iconic projects including Blackfriars Bridge. Leading the sector since 1998, we now see a market ready for subsidy-free solar and storage.

In Western Africa, our partnerships with international companies allowed them to reduce energy costs and their climate impact, taking advantage of the significant benefits of solar.
