ABOUT AMP

Amp is a global energy transition platform. We develop, own and operate clean energy assets throughout our core markets around the world, alongside our highly innovative IoT-based digital energy division, Amp X.

The company is headquartered in Toronto with global operations throughout Japan, Australia, India, Spain, Czech Republic, UK and North America. Founded in 2009, Amp is a high-growth disruptor at scale, backed by major investments from Apollo Group, a number of pension funds, two of the Walton family offices, and most recently the Carlyle Group, who invested US$375mm into the company in late 2020.

We are on our way to creating a Global Energy Transition Supermajor, and believe the key to our continued rapid success is our people and a singular mission.
