About us

Our company

Atlas at a glance

Atlas Renewable Energy was founded in 2017 by a team of executives with an exceptional track record in pioneering numerous global renewable energy projects and industry trends. Initially supported by the Actis Group - its largest investment to date - Atlas quickly became Latin America's largest privately-owned renewables independent power producer (IPP) and one of the world's fastest-growing renewable energy companies. Today, the company is backed by Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), a leading infrastructure fund manager with a renewable energy portfolio of over 19 GW of operating and construction capacity worldwide. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, Atlas adheres to rigorous standards in the development, construction, and operation of large-scale renewable energy projects across all regions of operation. Currently, the company boasts one of the largest fleets of solar projects in the Americas, with 2.7 GW of operating projects and about 5.6 GWs of solar and wind projects in various development, construction, and operation stages.

Our pillars of expertise

Project Development

Quality and feasibility are rigorously assessed by our development team to create a curated portfolio of greenfield and M&A projects that today account for over 10GW capacity ready to be adapted and built to meet our client needs. During project development, our engineers ensure that our projects are equipped with the latest technology. All our projects can be designed with Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS), bifacial modules and other technologies to ensure maximum efficiency. This innovative thinking allowed us to be one of the first companies to introduce bifacial modules, TrueCapture technology and digital substations to Latin America.

Energy Commercialization

Our comprehensive understanding of the market allows us to structure deals and opportunities with bankable long-term, stable contracts backed by credit-worthy sponsors. The result: Atlas has a track record of more than 5.6 GW of renewable energy projects with some of the largest and most prestigious companies operating in Latin America. We were the first company to provide bilateral solar PV PPAs to private markets without subsidies in LatAm. In 2020, we were the #1 developer for private offtakers in the region and #6 worldwide.

Capital Structuring

Backed by robust investment from our sponsor GIP and leveraging our long-term relationships with leading financial institutions, we’ve raised over $5 billion USD in credit products from over a dozen banks around the globe including IDB Invest, OPIC, IFC, DNB Markets, Itaú, Santander, Bradesco, Banco Nordeste de Brasil, BanBras, and HSBC. Atlas tailors capital solutions for each project using traditional project finance, capital markets, mezzanine, and other non-traditional financing structures to ensure competitiveness.

Project EPC

Our EPC team has constructed and successfully delivered nearly 2.7 GW of renewable energy assets across multiple Latin American jurisdictions. Working with trusted regional construction partners, Atlas oversees any and all aspects of engineering, procurement and execution while ensuring the highest standards in ecosystems protection and social engagement with the communities near our projects. Through a rigorous EPC contracting process, we find the most reliable suppliers to build strong, long-term relationships that minimize the risk of delays, supply issues, and cost overruns.

Asset Management & Project O&M

Our internal asset management team works to enhance the performance of our projects after construction is completed. Our methodical approach to asset management closely measures each asset’s KPIs to track and enhance profitability, environmental preservation and protection and interaction with local communities.

Backed by robust investment

Our clean energy solutions are backed by custom financial structures developed in partnership with robust financial institutions, ensuring the highest commitment to responsible practices and ESG standards.
