History & Name

When Eolus was founded in 1990, we were a forerunner in Sweden. We can with humility and pride state that we paved the way for the commercialization of the wind power industry in Sweden. Deeply rooted in the Skåne earth, we lifted our gaze with a vision of a sustainable future. From small-scale, innovative energy production in close collaboration with visionary customers, we have stepped up toward new horizons, and neither geographical distance nor technical challenges have stopped us. More than 30 years later, we are one of Sweden’s most established listed companies in project development of renewable energy generation, with operations in five countries.
