Glint Solar

We believe data will be the key driver for the energy transition

Who we are — meet the Glint Team

The climate crisis is a behemoth of a challenge and the outlook often seems bleak. However, we believe there are many reasons to be hopeful as we see gradual shifts in tectonic forces such as global policy, capital markets and new technology. But we can’t sit idle.

Glint was founded in 2020 with the mission of accelerating the adoption of floating solar energy across the globe. We have seen floating solar go from a niche market to becoming the third pillar in solar energy along with utility scale and rooftop solar.

With such advantages as no land use, potential for lower algae growth and lower water evaporation, and a higher yield from the water cooling, floating solar is one of the fastest growing energy sectors globally and part of the solution to decarbonizing the world.

To help de-risk new projects and accelerate the number of projects built, we saw the need to deploy innovative technology to optimize and simplify the existing solar site analysis process by providing a new way to gain fast, reliable insights.

By using a combination of satellite data and machine learning we offer a unique way to identify and analyze project sites for solar developers, solution providers, technical advisors and others around the world.

Together, we are accelerating the floating solar revolution.

Our Team

Our shared values and beliefs fuel our mission of accelerating the floating solar revolution. Our team combines the best of solar expertise, machine learning, data analysis, and business acumen.

We have experience working on solar projects across four continents. We’re extremely proud to have a global team, you’ll find us collaborating from locations such as Oslo, Boston and Pune.
