In an update report to shareholders released Thursday, the renewable energy company said it has already identified additional solar-power projects in four nations where it currently has operations -- Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Romania.
Those European solar parks now generate 29.1 megawatts of power, and the company hopes to up that power generation to more than 100 MWs by year’s end.

The company is targeting the addition of 40 MWs to 60 MWs in new projects in Germany (its biggest market), 15 MWs in Italy, and 24 MWs in the Netherlands. Negotiations are underway in Romania for additional acquisitions.
If Alternus achieves those goals, the New York-based company said it will have more than $15 million in annual contracted revenue at 85% gross margins and a backlog of about $250 million in contracted revenue over a 13- to 20-year period.
“With access to growth capital in place and a robust pipeline of solar projects, we are at a very exciting inflection point to significantly scale our business in a profitable way over the next few years,” CEO Vincent Browne said in the report.
Alternus owns and operates solar parks, which generate clean energy that is sold to national power grids under long-term, government counterparty, fixed-price contracts.
