MADRID, Nov 21 (Reuters) – Spanish renewable energy group Grenergy (GREG.MC) said on Tuesday that it will invest 2.6 billion euros ($2.84 billion) in the next three years to expand its solar power generation and battery storage projects.
The company expects to raise its solar capacity at 5 gigawatts (GW) by 2026 and its renewable energy storage capacity will reach 4.1 GWh.
It plans to sell part of the new assets at a pace of roughly 350-450 megawatts (MW) per year, for about 600 million euros by 2026.
Grenergy is aiming for earnings of around 250 million euros or 300 million euros in 2026 from its energy business.
Earlier this month, the company reported its net profit over the first nine months of the year jumped six-fold from the same period a year ago, thanks to sales of assets and growing energy production.
