Åre/Trondheim, September 8th 2022 – Sunna Group AB (“Sunna”)
Sunna Group, a Swedish developer of large-scale solar energy, enters into a partnership with Aneo, a nordic renewable energy company, with the aim of building solar parks in Sweden. With this collaboration, Sunna secures the conditions needed to reach their goal of 1 GW of solar energy production before 2030.
“Sunna’s ambition is to become a leading developer in large-scale solar power in Sweden,” says Marcus Qviberg, Sunna Group CEO. “In partnership with Aneo we get access to both the capital needed for the development and construction of our projects, as well as great experience from the team at Aneo from primarily wind and hydropower projects, which will bring a great contribution to the progress of our business.”
“If we are to succeed with the green transition, we must be brave enough to invest in new energy. Here and now, not sometime in the future. For Aneo, it is a natural first step into the Nordics to ally ourselves with Swedish companies such as Sunna Group. They share our ambition that something must be done quickly, and have a very strong team that has come a long way in a short time.” says Ståle Gjersvold, Aneo CEO.
Sunna currently has eight ongoing solar park projects with a combined output of 250 MW. The first park is planned to be in operation during 2023. A solar park is estimated to produce electricity for at least 30-35 years and requires minimal maintenance, which means that the area both in and around the park can offer a beneficial habitat for plants, insects and wildlife.
“Solar parks have a lifespan of at least 30 years, and in addition to producing green electricity we can ensure biodiversity at our sites,” Marcus continues. “We are looking for more “bad” locations with land that can’t be used for agriculture or other useful purposes, and instead can become a long-term investment for sustainable energy. “

Founded in June 2021 with the ambition to increase the amount of solar power in the energy system by producing, developing, owning, managing and selling large-scale solar power in the Nordic countries. Together with long-term capital partners, Sunna is a sustainable contributor to the Swedish energy market. Sunna increases access to green, locally produced solar power, which enables faster regional establishment and expansion of companies, as well as support for the electrification of society at large. Sunna’s goal is to build 500 MW before 2025 – which corresponds to roughly half of the largest hydropower plant in Sweden – and 1 GW of production by 2030.
A new, Nordic company focused on renewable energy with headquarters in Trondheim, founded by the energy company TrønderEnergi and the investment fund HitecVision. Aneo will be established in autumn 2022 and will invest heavily in renewable energy production, electrification and energy efficiency. Aneo will be a pioneer for the green transition with the ambition and investment power required to develop new, green value chains.
