The Japanese conglomerate had first bought a controlling stake in the trading firm in 2016 which helped its expansion in the Japanese market in 2020, such as its participation in a power purchase agreement (PPA) between Amazon and Mitsubishi last year.

The trading company was established in 2011 and is currently located in Ireland, the UK, Europe and Japan and has a team of 90 professionals who provide trading services to renewable assets, including batteries, in 14 different energy markets through its trading platform ElectroRoute CORE.

Ronan Doherty,  co-founder and executive director at ElectroRoute, said: “This transaction highlights Mitsubishi’s commitment to ElectroRoute and will allow us to continue to provide innovative energy trading solutions necessary to enable the decarbonised energy economy in Europe and Japan”.
