Soltech in solar energy venture with Logicenters – contracts seven new solar energy installations

Soltech company Soltech Energy Solutions develops large-scale energy solutions for property owners. The company will now help the fast-growing logistics real estate owner and developer Logicenters with seven new rooftop solar solutions. The total order value for the agreements amounts to SEK 28 million and the installations are expected to take place in the middle of 2023.

Soltech Energy Solutions provides large-scale solar energy solutions and tech solutions for property owners and energy companies among others. The company has over 30 years of experience in creating a profitable and future-proof electricity production for commercial properties, not least in the growing segment of logistics properties.

Seven new agreements have now been signed with the logistics real estate developer Logicenters, which invests heavily in solar energy for its properties. The agreements apply to various solar installations, including one installation with an installed power of 1 MWp, which corresponds to solar installations on approximately 140 houses. The solar energy solutions are to be installed at Logicenters' logistics properties in several locations in the Stockholm area but also in Landskrona, Örebro, Borås and Jönköping.

– We are very happy about the continued trust from Logicenters, which results in several new solar projects. This is completely in line with our ambition to join hands with other community builders who wants to lead the green transition. We look forward to helping with their continued solar energy investment, says Elin Höglund, Commercial manager at Soltech Energy Solutions.

Aiming for a climate-neutral property portfolio by 2028
Logicenters is the logistics part of the property developer NREP and manages over two million square meters of logistics space, and its climate ambitions are high. In 2028, NREP's entire property portfolio, which includes Logicenters' logistics properties, is to be climate neutral. This is to be done, among other things, via climate compensation, environmental certifications, but also by installing even more solar energy installations in the coming years.

– It feels great that we have agreed upon another handful of roof-mounted solar installations on our logistics properties. Solar energy is an important tool for us and our tenants in driving the green transition, but also an opportunity to reduce and obtain predictable energy costs. Logicenters must be at the forefront of renewable energy solutions and this investment is an important part of that work, says Jon Malmsten, Solar energy expert at Logicenters.
