“The construction of new renewable capacity relies on efficient and scalable funding and with this bond, we can increase our construction activity,” commented Knud Erik Andersen, CEO of European Energy. He pointed out that the market environment is “subject to a significant shift” due to the high power prices and increased construction costs.

With operations in 26 countries, it has more than 40 MW of renewable energy projects in its development pipeline and is working on the construction of over 1 GW of plants that are planned to go online by the end of this year.
