Oslo, 29 September 2022 –Today Scatec ASA’s leaders will present the details of the company’s sharpened strategy to the capital markets. Scatec will continue to develop, build, own and operate renewable energy in emerging markets and secure long-term, profitable, and sustainable growth in the strategy period towards 2027. Scatec is outlining three primary focus areas for the coming years, including financial ambitions and targets.
Grow renewables, advance green hydrogen, and optimise portfolio
- Scatec will continue to grow its renewables business, including solar, wind and hydro, by building scale in selected focus markets to improve predictability and value creation.
- Scatec will build on its core strengths to take a leadership role in green hydrogen by developing prime locations in emerging markets, securing long-term offtake, and funding, and applying the integrated business model.
- Scatec will optimise its portfolio, by simplifying and consolidating, capturing additional value in power markets, and scaling and launching Release as an independent platform.
“Scatec is a growth company with a solid track record and ambitious targets. We aim to be a leader in developing, owning, and operating renewable energy and green hydrogen across our focus markets. It is in our DNA to continually seize new opportunities. We now do so with a more focused approach and by maintaining a clear intention to create value,” says CEO Terje Pilskog.
Scatec focuses on key strategic growth markets
Scatec aims to build a strong and long-term position in specific focus markets, where most of the company’s capital and resources will be spend. Those markets are South Africa, Brazil, the Philippines, Hydro-Africa, Egypt, India, and Poland. Here, Scatec will focus on larger projects, while maintaining an opportunistic approach to other projects (outside of these markets), with clear guidelines on types of projects, size, and means of value creation.
Financial targets and ambitions
Scatec targets to invest NOK 10 billion of equity in new power plants towards 2027 adding NOK 3 billion in annual Proportionate Power Production EBITDA. This investment target corresponds to an average gross new capacity of 1.5 GW annually. The company has a solid financial platform for growth, including a diversified asset portfolio, prudent financial risk management, continued focus on cost discipline, and solid cash flow.
“We are setting up our company to be consistently at its strongest,” adds Pilskog. “At Scatec, we pride ourselves on being a team of changemakers who are always driving results and ready to capture opportunities as they emerge by working together. This is what defines us. Our long-term vision is to improve the future, and that works starts with our key strategic actions towards 2027.”
