About Younergy

The distributed utility

Younergy is a fintech / cleantech hybrid that uses technology to change the way solar energy is developed, financed and operated. We develop and manage solar investment projects, providing:

  • Attractive returns to investors
  • Project financing solutions to developers
  • Affordable electricity to end customers.

We built a proprietary pricing, monitoring, and billing platform that allows us to efficiently manage the sourcing of commercial solar opportunities, the contracting process and the construction phase of each project.

During the projects’ lifetime Younergy manages the ongoing operation and maintenance of the systems, bills the energy customers, and provides returns to investors

Younergy was incorporated in 2015 and is headquarted in Lausanne, Switzerland
