The leading financial daily of the Nordics, Dagens Industri, yesterday was first outlet to report that we have secured a major investment from seven of Sweden’s most recognized investors during summer. The injection of 8 MEUR increased the value of our company tenfold, and will enable us to increase the speed of our expansion and thereby cut CO2 emissions even more rapidly. One first step will be to branch out operations to Spain in November.
Some excerpts from yesterday’s article:
– We are extremely happy to see such competent and experienced investors, who have built very successful companies of their own, come onboard as partners. It’s a sign off on our business model and expansion strategy by very credible players, says Niklas Engström, CEO and one of the founders of Bright Sunday.
The capital injection takes Bright Sunday closer to reaching its short term goals.
”We are now aiming to invest at least 250 MEUR during the coming four years while delivering a positive net result. Moving into Spain, one of Europe’s biggest and most important market for solar energy will be one first important step in reaching that goal, says Niklas Engström.”
If you find the piece interesting and want to know more about Bright Sunday and our mission for a more sustainable future, do not hesitate to contact us.
This hotel in Fundau is getting 250 kWp of solar panels, primarily built on top of the parking space. This has the added benefit of shading the cars in summertime, leaving them nice and cool. Because let’s face it, as much as we love that Portuguese sun helping us make our planet more sustainable, it’s a major pain getting into a boiling hot car.
Quinta de Flores has previously replaced a lot of its lighting in order to lower their energy consumption, so adding solar was the next logical step for them.

Vitoria Setubal is a football club in the Primeira Liga in Portugal. Our contract includes installing LED lights on their training facility and in their offices. This will both generate a massive saving in energy cost as well as a reduction of CO2 emissions equivalent to more than 64 tonnes annually.
And that is just the beginning. We also installed 250 kWp worth of solar panels on the roof of their futsal, handball och gymnastics facility. This will help reduce CO2 emissions by a massive 165 tonnes annually.
So help us cheer Vitoria Setubal on!
And let us know if your sports club (or any other company for that matter) needs our help getting your own renewable energy solutions or LED installations with no upfront costs.

The owner of Regia Park wanted to strengthen the business park’s sustainability profile. Bright Sunday is of course more than happy to help out. We’re financing 164 kWp of solar, generating 249 MWh of renewable energy the first year. The installation this time is not done on the roof, but instead on land that is not possible to use for parking.
Regia Park includes 28 companies and all of them are in some way involved in the wine making business in the Douro valley. This means the grapes will be powered by sunshine before, during and after they are picked
