WElink Energy has today been recognised for its significant and groundbreaking investment in renewable energy at the UK’s Department of International Trade Business Awards held in Lisbon, Portugal.

WElink is also currently on course in 2019 to surpass Ourika’s record with the delivery of its 221MWp Solara4 solar power plant, also located in Southern Portugal.

WElink Energy CEO John Murphy said of the award:

‘WElink is delighted to receive this award in recognition of our work innovating the future in solar energy generation.

We have developed a competitive business model to deliver utility-scale solar plants without the need for public subsidy.

Moving forward, we have a significant European growth strategy with an initial focus on the Iberian Peninsula, that will help accelerate the delivery of key renewable targets in the region and a low carbon future in Europe.’
