Solar is enjoying rapid growth in Brazil, almost tripling in size last year according to BP’s Statistical Review of World Energy.
Through this acquisition, Lightsource BP will boost its portfolio, bolster experience and establish its ambition to become a major player in the local solar market.
As part of this transaction, some members of the Enerlife team will transition to Lightsource BP to work on the acquired portfolio.
Group chief operating officer for Lightsource BP Kareen Boutonnat said: “This move creates a very firm footprint for us across the region and bringing the Enerlife team onboard significantly enhances our local capability and experience. These are the building blocks of which we will grow a very successful solar business across Brazil.”
