Ilmatar Solar plans and designs for some of Europe’s largest solar parks in various locations around Sweden. As these projects move forward, we’re constantly on the lookout for more land suitable for large-scale solar power. Our goal is crystal clear: to scale up the production of renewable energy in Sweden.
Together we take faster and larger steps towards a fossil-free energy system in the North.
We’re always on the lookout for top talent and new partners. Contact us if you want to make a difference too.
While Ilmatar Solar is relatively new on the Swedish market, Ilmatar is a major and experienced player in a Nordic context. Ilmatar Solar is owned by Ilmatar Energy, a Nordic energy company 100 percent focused on renewable energy.
Ilmatar is one of the largest and fastest growing Nordic players in green energy in the Nordic region. We have a large number of production facilities that are already in operation or are under development.
Unlike many other energy companies, Ilmatar Solar is present throughout the projects’ life cycle, from mapping out suitable properties to decommissioning the parks.
Ilmatar Solar’s goal with our projects is to produce renewable energy everyone can be proud of. Energy that both leads to good returns for landowners and to significant benefits for the local community.
At Ilmatar Solar we are passionate about sustainability and the environment. This you will notice the very first time we meet. But our efforts don’t stop there. We are also very serious about our communication regarding renewable energy when we support local associations and take part in different community projects.
Although our business model is to produce renewable energy, environmentally-friendly energy is more than just a commodity for us. Ilmatar was founded in 2011 by Mikko Toivanen and Kalle Pykälä with the goal of stopping climate change. The company is still owned by the founders – together with European funds and private investors – and the passion for sustainability is as strong now as when the company was first founded.
Large-scale production of green energy requires a lot of capital. This is because it costs a great deal of money to build large solar parks. Parks that will pay back the investment by producing renewable energy for 50 years.
Thanks to a long collaboration with international investors, Ilmatar has access to structured capital. Our extensive experience has also made us experts in financing renewable energy projects.
We have close collaborations with major European players, which means Ilmatar Solar has the financial muscle required to carry out larger projects safely.
