The acquisition of Solenergi Power Private Limited and the Sprng Energy group of companies from Actis Solenergi Limited has been completed by Shell Overseas Investment B.V., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell plc (Shell). Actis Solenergi Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shell (Actis).
Actis launched Sprng Energy in 2017 as a renewable energy platform with headquarters in Pune, India. The company is focused on the development and management of renewable energy facilities, including solar and wind farms, as well as infrastructure assets.
Shell's existing renewable capacity will be increased by a factor of three as a result of the acquisition of wind and solar assets, which will also assist the company in implementing its Powering Progress strategy. The development of an integrated power business as part of Powering Progress is an essential component with the end goal of assisting Shell in meeting its objective of becoming a profitable energy business with net-zero emissions by the year 2050.
