HISTORY

The Fukushima nuclear disaster illustrated the emerging impact of climate change. SoftBank Group Corp. Chairman Masayoshi Son was profoundly moved by the disaster and started a new company to build renewable energy projects in Japan. Building on this foundation, SoftBank launched SB Energy’s global business in 2015, with the vision of deploying renewable energy at the scale require for the planet to end its reliance on nuclear power and fossil fuels. Today, SB Energy has 9.4 GW of utility scale energy projects contracted in India and the United States and is among the world’s largest solar platforms. As a leader in the global energy transition, SB Energy’s goal is to enable 24X7 access to renewables.
