Enlight Renewable Energy is looking to hold an initial public offering (IPO) on a Wall Street Stock Exchange. No plans have been set, as of yet, for the company, which specializes in projects involving the generation of electricity from renewable energy. But it filed a prospectus with the SEC and is reportedly looking at raising as much as $200 million.

So, finally some good news for Israel Startup Nation in the new year. So far there has largely been a continuation of layoffs and so on because of the current global financial crisis. But if the Enlight Renewable Energy IPO takes off it would mean a reverse of last year’s trend that saw canceled IPOs and the devaluation of startups. Enlight is currently traded on the Tase Tel Aviv 125 Index and is 98% publicly held with a market cap currently above $2.3 billion.

Just last summer Enlight Renewable Energy signed an agreement for the acquisition and joint development of a 525 MW portfolio of renewable energy projects in Croatia, across various stages of development. The portfolio comprises five projects, four of which are solar, totaling 386 MW and one of which is wind, totaling 139 MW. Enlight projects that the projects will commence construction from the end of 2023 through 2025, subject to the successful completion of the development phase for each project.
