The team will be integrated into Solarpack to execute Solaer’s portfolio of projects under development, which reaches 2.8 gigawatts (GW) in Spain and Italy. With this operation, Solarpack advances in the growth objective set out in its strategic plan for 2026.

Pablo Burgos, CEO of Solarpack: “We are very pleased to add a team with distinctive capabilities and a strong portfolio of assets that reinforce our strategy of building a strong, global, diversified solar PV platform. We will continue to explore selective opportunities that can generate additional value for our shareholders and accelerate the energy transition”.
