    EXCELLENCE AS A RULE

Our history


Atlas Renewable Energy was founded in 2017 by a team of executives with an exceptional track record in pioneering numerous renewable energy projects around the world, and spearheading industry trends. Initially bolstered by the support of the Actis Group, a worldwide investor in renewable energy projects (and constituting the largest investment ever made by Actis to date), Atlas became the largest independently owned renewables IPP in Latin America.  Furthermore, it has been one of the fastest growing international Renewable companies in the world.

Today, Atlas Renewable Energy’s capital source and overall backing comes from Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), a leading independent infrastructure fund manager with over $84 billion under management, with a robust renewable energy portfolio of over 19 GW of operating and construction capacity worldwide.

Since its beginnings, Atlas has uncompromisingly adhered to rigorous standards in the development, construction, and operation of large renewable energy projects. This methodology aims to ensure the highest level of excellence in the implementation of its strategy in all the regions where the company operates.

Currently, Atlas operates one of the largest fleets of solar projects in the Americas, reaching 2.3 GW of operating projects and a total of some 3.5 GWs of contracted solar and wind projects under development, construction and operation.

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT Our management team has been a key pioneer of the renewable energy industry in Latin America, with a number of ‘firsts’ across the region (including the first utility scale project in Latin America). We have developed over 800 MW of greenfield projects that have successfully closed financing across multiple jurisdictions within Latin America. Our company is recognized for its focus on full-cycle levelized cost of electricity (LCOE); our aim is to maximize the asset’s potential to reduce LCOE in order to achieve the best value to our clients, while simultaneously minimizing risk.

ENERGY COMMERCIALIZATION

ENERGY COMMERCIALIZATION With a track record of winning more than 1000 GWh of PPA contracts in Latin America, our company utilizes our fundamental understanding of the market to structure advantageous bilateral PPA opportunities focused on bankable long-term and stable contracts with credit-worthy sponsors. Our management team was the first to sign a private market bilateral solar PV PPA without subsidies; this achievement served as a catalyst for the industry in Latin America.

CAPITAL STRUCTURING

CAPITAL STRUCTURING Leveraging our long-term relationships with leading financial institutions, we’ve raised over $1.5 billion USD across five Latin American markets, and with over a dozen banks. We define a tailored capital solution to each project utilizing traditional project finance, capital markets, mezzanine, and other non-traditional financing structures.

PROJECT EPC

PROJECT EPC Our EPC team have successfully constructed nearly 1GW across 12 projects in multiple jurisdictions of Latin America. We generally contract the construction activities to two or more external companies. However, Atlas oversees all aspects of engineering, procurement and execution, working closely with a filtered list of strategic suppliers, to ensure adequate risk allocation through a rigorous and disciplined EPC contracting process. Furthermore, our team has strong C-Suite executive relationships with said suppliers and contractors to ensure we are able to get the required traction.

ASSET MANAGEMENT AND PROJECT O&M

ASSET MANAGEMENT AND PROJECT O&M Our internal asset management teams work to continue enhancing the performance of our projects after construction is completed. Applying a high standard of excellence, our company adopts a methodical approach to asset management - we closely measure each asset’s KPIs to track and enhance its profitability while tracking its environmental obligations and interaction with local communities.
