The SOLEK Group, founded by Czech entrepreneur Zdeněk Sobotka, stands as a global leader in photovoltaic energy production and supply since its establishment in 2010. Renowned for innovation in renewable and sustainable energy, SOLEK develops, builds, owns, and operates (IPP) solar power plants across Europe and Latin America. It also actively maintains a diverse portfolio of PV plants it owns and is owned by third-party clients.

Chile serves as a focal point for SOLEK's operations, managing nearly 40 photovoltaic power plants with a total capacity exceeding 250 MW. Expanding strategically, SOLEK is venturing into new European markets such as Romania, France, Spain, Serbia, Greece, and the Balkans while maintaining a strong presence in Latin America, recently making successful strides in Colombia.

Driven by a commitment to green energy solutions, SOLEK continually seeks to diversify its portfolio. Exploring new frontiers, the company is actively involved in developing floating photovoltaic power plants, agrovoltaics, battery storage (including CO2 batteries), hybrid projects, wind farms, green hydrogen, and green ammonia.

Recognizing solar energy as both an environmental choice and an investment opportunity, SOLEK employs various financing strategies. Corporate bond programs with stable returns, fund financing, and bank financing, coupled with the trust of leading global investors and banks, underscore the financial strength of SOLEK's projects.

In a landmark move, SOLEK secured an agreement in 2021 with financial giants BlackRock and Nala Renewables for the construction and operation (O&M) of 2 portfolio PV projects in Chile. Additionally, it secured financing from Natixis investment bank and CIFI for the construction of its own portfolio of projects also in Chile.

Notably, in May 2023, SOLEK entered the major United States Private Placement market (USPP) with the issuing of a USD 178 million, 20-year investment bond in New York, confirming its attractiveness to international investors. BNP Paribas and Natixis acted as lead arrangers and placement agents of the transaction and have had strong demand from investors, confirming the attractiveness of SOLEK's assets and the market's confidence in its long-term plans. The funds will finance the construction of SOLEK's 284 MW Chilean portfolio, which is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2024.

After the relaunch of its activities in Europe in 2020, SOLEK is currently present in 9 countries, developing a portfolio of Solar, Storage, and Hybrid projects. It currently manages a pipeline of more than 1200 MW, of which more than 500 MW are in an advanced stage of development. We expect to launch the construction of the first European projects in 2024.
