About Better Energy

Better Energy is an international renewable energy company that creates new green energy. Better Energy was founded with the purpose of accelerating the transition to renewable energy sources with better solutions and mass quantities of affordable clean energy. We have done so by creating Northern Europe’s biggest solar parks, which is currently supplying some of Denmark’s (and other countries?) biggest companies with green energy. Solar energy has proven to be the most efficient and affordable type of energy that exists, which we made a profitable business out of without any subsidiaries. In fact, we are so good at what we do that we have decided the set the bar even higher and have committed to be a part of Future Fit Foundation, where we have even become a part of their Development Council. Here we help exploring how business can create and accelerate sustainable and regenerative solutions to humanity’s biggest challenges. For more information on Future Fit please check out our website. Better Energy has office locations in both Frederiksberg in Copenhagen and Sønderborg in Jutland, and is currently counting around 140 employees, but that number is increasing as we are vastly expanding. In 2020 Better Energy had a revenue of more than 1 billion DKK, which was a double from 2019, and we have even more ambitious plans ahead of us.
