Solar Energy

Solar energy has consistently outperformed all expert predictions over the last decade and has greatly exceeded even the most ambitious industry forecasts, too. Now accepted as one of the leading sources for green energy provision, the technology's bright future is both vital and assured.

“Solar energy is currently the leading climate change technology solution. It is long-established enough to be understood and refined, and it is the most cost-effective application for many geographies and economies.”
Daniel TainPresident

The full spectrum solution

Solar energy is an established asset class with negligible investment risk.

At GoldenPeaks Capital Energy, the availability of the full spectrum of expertise, together with access to finance and management skills, applied with agility and speed, combine to provide a complete, efficient commercial solution.

Technology & Benefits

Solar energy has several fundamental technological benefits over other renewables. For more detail please click here to see the website of our affiliate EPC, Spectris.
01
Photovoltaic cells have been around for a long time and the technology and application is well-proven and relatively easy to understand. The experience curve drives costs ever lower and today’s economies of scale are considerable.
02
The sun has the potential to provide all the clean energy the earth will ever need. And the infrastructure and technology will one day exist to capture this. It just needs roll-out in an uncompromised, environmentally and socially responsible way. And fast.
03
Solar is a contributor to mitigating world poverty. The technology allows for economic installation in poorer communities, many of whom live in sunnier climates. Only 7% of the world’s population live north of London… For the rest, solar energy can provide practical solutions.

Background &
Achievements

GoldenPeaks founders – Adriano Agosti and Daniel Tain – have an ingrained entrepreneurial DNA having both built successful businesses in asset management, activist investing, real estate, and energy over the past 40 years.

The founders have combined disciplines learnt from investing through multiple business cycles across many international territories.

Previous business successes allow the founders to wholly own all of their new renewable energy projects. This is critical in competitive, fast growth markets such as solar energy where decisive actions, quickly executed, make the difference between success and failure.

Growth & Potential

Currently, solar accounts for around 2% of worldwide electricity production only 9% of which currently comes from renewables. But solar energy is increasing its contribution by around 40% a year. This means that the 2% will grow to at least 50% by 2030. By 2050 it will be much higher still, and contributing the greatest part to achieving a zero emissions energy economy.
