The Company

Galileo is a pan-European platform for developing and investing in various technologies in the renewable energy sector. It was established in 2020 with the goal of making a significant and substantial contribution to the energy transition in Europe, with an industry vision of combining four core competencies to make a difference in the new era of renewables: competitive project development; electricity sales to end consumers; energy management; and innovative financing solutions. Today Galileo is pursuing a pipeline of photovoltaic, onshore and offshore wind, and storage system projects exceeding 10 GW in ten countries in Europe. Galileo is led by Ingmar Wilhelm, a developer and entrepreneur in the energy transition sector, supported by a team of internationally prominent managers, and is backed by four major institutional investors with long-term strategies: Infratil Limited, Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC), New Zealand Superannuation Fund (NZ Super Fund), and Morrison & Co Growth Infrastructure Fund (MGIF).
