Alternus Energy Inc (OTCMKTS:ALTN), a global renewable energy company, said Thursday that it closed €8,628,000 ($9,749,640) in financing from Eiffel Energy Transition Fund SLP.

“We appreciate the investment and confidence of our financial partner, Eiffel, in sharing our vision,” said Alternus Energy CEO Vincent Browne. “We see opportunities across Europe for us to a acquire solar park assets, operate and manage them under long-term contracts and generate solid cash flows.”
