Team

Our rapidly growing international team in Munich works with enthusiasm and energy industry expertise to implement our shared conviction that renewable energy is key for a sustainable future. With our knowledge, intelligent solutions, and committed teamwork we develop and run renewable plants profitably, and thus prove their competitiveness in the energy market.

The Pacifico team relies on many years of experience in project development and planning, asset acquisition, financing, as well as in the construction and operation of renewable energy plants in Europe. Comprehensive knowledge of the European electricity markets and current industry trends, such as the increasing relevance of Power Purchase Agreements, round off our competence profile. Thanks to our flat hierarchies and collaborative approach, we remain flexible and can react quickly to arising opportunities in the market.
