Aside from investing towards the construction of 2GW of solar PV and co-located storage, the financing facility will offer the German developer inorganic growth and recruit more workers across Germany.

Christoph Strasser, CEO of MaxSolar, said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with like-minded partners who share our vision of accelerating Europe’s energy transition. The financing facility will play a significant role in enabling our next growth phase by helping us materially scale our offering.”
