Galp Solar decentralised solutions
Galp developed a decentralised renewable energy production solution, Galp Solar, based on smaller scale solar power generation systems and services aiming at maximising energy consumption and efficiency both to B2B and B2C segments.
This brand uses advanced technologies, such as satellite image analysis, artificial intelligence algorithms and big data, to optimise the acquisition and installation cost of decentralised solar panels, offering the solution that best suited to each customer's needs.
At the end of 2021, Galp Solar already has an installed capacity of c.13 MW, covering more than 4,000 clients in Iberia.
During the year, the brand also developed relevant projects on Galp’s assets, making our service stations and refining activities more sustainable. At Galp’s Sines refinery, Galp Solar is installing solar panels with a capacity of 21 MW, corresponding to 10% of our refinery electrical needs.
This brand aims to position Galp in the area of the energy transition, with an innovative digital approach. Going forward, the Company will seek the development of new products and services (e.g. batteries, EV chargers, home solutions) to capture the high potential of the Iberian market.
Through GoWithFlow, Galp is promoting solutions for its customers' fleets transitioning to EVs, including charging, fleet management and vehicle sharing systems. Through an integrated view of vehicle and energy data, fleet and facilities managers can plan and operate a heterogeneous network of combustion and electric vehicles along with managing fuel and electricity consumption.
During 2021, GoWithFlow already established business development teams in the U.K. and Spain and has secured contracts with more than 8,000 mobility assets (vehicles and charging stations) to Flow Mobility Change Platform.
Galp is currently analysing the potential for expanding this business model to new geographies, developing technological partnerships and new sales channels.
