Capwatt was set up in 2008 as a fully owned subsidiary of Sonae Capital, to become the group´s energy business.


The move took advantage of the existing experience and know-how in power plant development within the Sonae group, dating back to the 1980´s.
The aim was to transform a set of existing energy related assets and skills embedded in other Sonae operations into a business in its own right.
Today, Capwatt´s portfolio has grown significantly and is mostly independent of other Sonae Group activities.
