Key figures in April–June

  • Savosolar’s revenue in April–June stood at EUR 0.7 million (April–June 2021: EUR 0.9 million).
  • Operating result (EBIT) amounted to EUR -1.2 (-1.1) million.

Savosolar’s CEO Jari Varjotie:

“Our revenue for the first half of 2022 increased as the market recovered from the previous year’s downturn. Our revenue for January–June was EUR 2.1 million, which is about 31 percent higher than in the corresponding period of the previous year. EUR 1.4 million of the turnover was accumulated in the first quarter and EUR 0.7 million in the second quarter.

The net result of the first half of the year was weakened by the increase in material costs in particular, which we were unable to transfer to the previously agreed-upon fixed customer prices. In new tenders, we have taken the changes in material costs into account more strongly than before. Our operating result for January–June was EUR -2.4 million, compared to EUR -2.2 million a year ago.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused global turbulence in the energy sector. Europe’s dependence on the energy imported from Russia demands quick solutions from energy industry operators for the coming winter.  At the same time, it has awakened both cities and companies as well as EU decision-makers to think about sustainable and flexible energy solutions further into the future. Interest towards solar heat has grown when energy availability and self-sufficiency issues have risen alongside the climate targets. As a result of the recent market development, the relative price competitiveness of solar heat has continued to improve, despite the fact that the material costs of solar heating systems have also increased.

Solar heat is typically used locally, which reduces expensive power transmission line and battery investments. In addition, the large-scale use of solar heat accelerates the transition to clean energy production when emission-free electricity of limited availability can be utilised elsewhere than in heat production.

The increased uncertainty about the availability and costs of energy and materials complicates the timing of the customers’ investment decisions. Energy investments are currently more expensive than before, but the pressure towards renewable energy investments is constantly increasing.

During the reporting period, we signed a contract with Newheat SAS on the delivery of a solar thermal field worth around EUR 3 million to Verdun, France. This is already our fourth system delivery to Newheat who, as the owner and operator of the solar thermal system, sells heat with long-term contracts to its customers, in this case to Lactalis Group’s whey powder factory. We are pleased with Newheat’s choice to continue cooperation with us.

Towards the end of the reporting period, we had the pleasure of announcing a long-prepared pilot project for the mining industry in Latin America. The delivery worth around 0.2 million euros is significantly more important than its monetary value, as it is Savosolar’s first customer in the mining industry and the first customer in Latin America, where even the world’s leading mining companies are currently actively looking for low-emission energy sources.

We have continued to develop our products and offerings by, among other things, strengthening our ability to integrate clean sources of heat and our competence to support the customers’ project development.

The future of solar heat looks bright. Our customers who have switched to the utilisation of solar heat have been very satisfied with their investment decisions, especially in the current situation. Even though the exceptionally high cost level may hold back all energy investment decisions in the short term, I see that the rise in energy prices and the availability risks will keep interest towards solar heat high and speed up decisions to switch to low-cost and truly clean renewable solar heat.”

Existing authorisations of the Board of Directors

The Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders of 1 October 2021 authorised the Board of Directors to decide, in one or more transactions, on the issuance of shares and the issuance of option rights and other special rights entitling to shares referred to in chapter 10, section 1 of the Limited Liability Companies to the effect that the number of shares to be issued based on the authorisation may in total amount to a maximum of 275,000,000 shares. The authorisation is valid until 30 September 2026. Of the authorisation 81,183,075 shares were remaining on 30 June 2022. 

GENERAL RISKS AND UNCERTAINTY FACTORS CONCERNING OPERATIONS

The most significant risks involved in Savosolar’s business are the ability to win new projects to achieve growth in line with the strategy, the sufficiency of the necessary working capital, and the ability to increase the efficiency of operations so as to turn the operations profitable.

The war in Ukraine has increased uncertainty concerning the availability and prices of materials and components. No Russian or Ukrainian components are directly used in Savosolar’s products. However, the war situation can maintain exceptionally high prices material and component prices and prolonged delivery times. If continued for a long time, these may slow down the growth of Savosolar’s business and the improvement of profitability. On the other hand, the rise in energy prices and the reduction of the use of Russian fossil fuels are estimated to have a positive effect on the demand for renewable energy, which also facilitates the development of Savosolar’s business.

The company’s Board of Directors monitors the development of the company’s profitability and cash flow actively and, together with the company’s management, seeks the best solutions to develop the company towards profitable long-term business. The Board of Directors continuously considers the sufficiency of financing as an important part of the company’s growth strategy. Considering the recent favourable development for the company and the industry, the Board is confident that the company will be able to raise the necessary financing in the form on equity and debt capital to achieve the growth and profitability in line with its strategy.

However, it cannot be guaranteed that the volume and profitability of the company’s business will grow sufficiently and that the company can gain enough supplementary finance just on time and with terms and conditions that are favourable enough for the present shareholders. In case the company does not succeed in generating growth and improving its profitability and/or raising additional financing to meet the needs of business, the company may be forced to postpone, cut back or terminate operations.

STRATEGY AND LONG-TERM GOALS

Savosolar’s intention is to help organisations and companies to reduce their carbon emissions with clean renewable thermal energy.

The company’s vision is to be the first-choice supplier of large solar installations on a global scale.

The company’s strategic objective is to grow substantially and be the leading supplier of large solar thermal installations where quality and efficiency matter the most. This means large-scale systems such as solar district heating (SDH) and solar heat for industrial processes (SHIP). In industry, the principal segments are the mining, paper and food industry and greenhouses.

In implementing its strategy, the key factors for the company are its proprietary solar collector technology and knowledge of system design as well as its strong local and global partners. The geographical focus of operations continues to remain in Europe, but the company is actively seeking partners and marketing its products and services outside Europe as well. Savosolar delivers energy systems on a turnkey basis in line with its strategy in collaboration with its partners. The partners in different countries also serve as a sales channel for Savosolar’s products.

MARKET ENVIRONMENT

Until now, underlying clean renewable energy production has, above all, been the fight against global warming. The European Commission’s proposal for a directive on renewable energy sources of July 2021 (Fit for 55) aims at reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% from the 1990 level by 2030. The EU’s target is to be carbon neutral by 2050. The European Union has also allocated 30 per cent of its EUR 1,800 billion support instrument for recovery from the corona pandemic for 2021–2023 to climate actions, i.e., for strengthening the EU Green Deal programme. Emission reduction and carbon neutrality targets have been widely set in other parts of the world as well.

In the emission reduction targets, the public discussion has largely focused on electrification with solar and wind power. In Europe, for example, heating accounts for about 50% of total energy use, traffic about 30% and direct electricity use only about 20%, and more than half of Europe’s carbon emissions are caused by heating.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused global turbulence in the energy sector, the effects of which are particularly visible in Europe. The need to reduce Europe’s dependence on Russian energy has quickly emerged alongside the climate targets. Concern about the price and availability of energy, especially in heat production, has given rise to measures to secure energy supply in preparation for the coming winter, but at the same time, it has increased interest towards renewable energy. 

Even though the utilisation of emission-free solar heat in district heating and industrial processes has increased in recent years, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA), only around 11 percent of heating is produced with renewable energy worldwide. In electricity production, renewable energy sources account for about 29 percent, according to IEA. Electrification is a strong trend, but it is clear that the electricity produced solely by means of renewable forms of energy is not nearly enough to replace all fossil energy, nor to meet the needs of the green hydrogen economy of the future. By increasing the utilisation of solar heat in heating, renewable electricity can be utilised more and faster in, for example, electrified traffic.

In May 2022, the EU Commission published an extensive package, the RePowerEU plan, which seeks solutions on how to transition away from Russian fossil energy to clean energy as soon as possible. Among other things, the Commission proposes to increase the renewable energy target of the Energy Efficiency Directive from 40% to 45%. As one concrete measure, the Commission proposes speeding up the permit processes for renewable energy projects.

In the same context with the RePower communication, the Commission announced a solar energy strategy that aims to ensure the utilisation of the full potential of solar energy in order to reach the climate and energy targets of the European Green Deal Programme. The Member States should speed up the deployment of solar electricity and the utilisation of large heat pumps, geothermal energy, and solar heat. The strategy highlights increasing the use of solar heat especially in district heating.

According to a report prepared on the production of district heat in Narbonne, France, solar heat has the lowest life-cycle emissions among the clean sources of energy (source: Inuk ST Plant CO2 footprint study 2021 / Ademe). No rare earth metals are used in Savosolar’s solar collectors, and the collector materials are completely recyclable. The strengths of solar heat also include the Europe-based manufacturing of solar thermal technology and the smaller need for land compared to, for example, photovoltaic panels.

In its roadmap announced in June, Solar Heat Europe has calculated that solar heat capacity will triple from 2021 to 2030. This would mean that at the end of the current decade, emission-free solar heat would have replaced around 12 billion cubic meters of Russian gas. At the same time, more than 250,000 green transition jobs would be created in Europe. According to the roadmap, the greatest potential is in industrial process heating, especially in food production, of which around 10 percent could already be covered by solar heat in 2030.

The goal of increasing energy self-sufficiency and reducing emissions further reinforces the need for the joint use of different forms of energy and heat production. The flexibility of energy systems, the optimisation of the use of different energy sources and the possibilities for energy storage will grow in significance. Solar heat is well-suited for various kinds of heat co-generation systems, and it can be cost-effectively stored by means of water reservoirs. 

The market for large solar thermal systems with a temperature of less than one hundred degrees has a limited number of skilled turnkey suppliers that operate globally. Savosolar is the technology and quality leader in this segment.
