Want to build amazing tech for the renewable energy sector?
Glint Solar is an Oslo based venture and private equity-funded startup accelerating the growth of solar energy by satellite data and machine learning. As climate change is getting more dire, an important strategy to mitigate the dire consequences is for the world to increase the amount of solar energy installed.
