Seeing the Light

In 90 minutes, enough sunlight strikes the earth to provide the entire planet’s energy needs for one year. While solar energy is abundant, it still represents only a fraction of the world’s current energy mix according to the IEA.

This is rapidly changing – driven by global action to improve energy access and supply, around the world, governments and companies are investing in solar generation capacity on an unprecedented scale.

As we look beyond today, we continue to invest in a transition to a more sustainable energy future that is not only necessary but inevitable. 

Abdul Latif Jameel Energy has reaffirmed and underlined our ongoing commitment to driving the transition to sustainable energy and the pressing need to reimagine the very future of energy.

A vision that is aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and particularly, SDG7 working to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

The bold ambition and notable achievements of our flagship global renewable energy solutions business, FRV demonstrates our determination.

From Infrastructure Developer to Power Producer and Technology Incubator

Our initial focus, beginning a decade ago, was in utility-scale photovoltaic solar energy infrastructure development, acquiring FRV in 2015, and investing in proven experience and expertise for expansion and growth in both capabilities and geographies.

FRV has accelerated its’ rapid growth strategy moving from solar PV utility-scale infrastructure developer, towards becoming a 100% renewable energy IPP (Independent Power Producer) in alignment with our core ambition of being a leading player in the world’s transition to a sustainable energy future. 

As this acceleration continues, we are today, rapidly developing new capabilities, exploring new emergent technologies and business models, through our specialist FRV-X team, with the goal to transform FRV into a future-oriented comprehensive and cohesive global ‘green energy platform’. 

This strategic ambition will be rapidly realized through revenue generation from our own businesses; rotation of existing assets under operation through minority stake sales and pipeline sales; shareholders contributions and the divestiture of assets – reinvesting those funds to accelerate the growth of our ambitious vision and the concrete and timely execution of our plans. 

Over the next four-to-six years, FRV expects investment in fixed assets that is set to double the total installed capacity under management by 2024, and we remain committed to accelerate the democratization of renewable energy – increasing accessibility for all.
