AES is fundamentally changing the way solar is installed to make it more affordable, accessible, faster, safer, efficient and scalable to accelerate decarbonization for businesses worldwide.

That’s why we’re revolutionizing the future of solar through our first-of-its-kind solar robot and innovation partnership with 5B.



AES developed a first-of-its-kind solar robot to enhance the speed, efficiency and safety of scaling solar.


Why Atlas?

Atlas will complement our skilled workforce by keeping them safe and performing the heavy lifting, placing and attachment of solar modules while adding new high-tech jobs.


Solar jobs are installation and construction-related, the largest segment in the industry


U.S. solar workers needed by 2030 to reach 100% clean energy goal by 2035


Increase of employment in solar installation from 2020-2030, the fastest growing career in the U.S.


Solar construction can be automated


O&M services can be automated

5B and AES unfold the power of solar energy

AES is a world leader in solar innovation


AES is one of the world leaders in battery energy storage and integrating batteries with renewable energy, like solar, wind and hydropower.


24/7 carbon-free energy

hawaii solar panels

Kauai Island Utility Cooperative and AES made history by creating a new model for delivering large-scale renewable energy.

Together, we created the PV Peaker Plant, a first of-its-kind DC-coupled solution delivering reliable, readily dispatchable carbon-free power through one of the world’s largest operational solar-plus-storage systems.

Alamitos BESS

AES launched the global energy storage industry

The Edison Electric Institute (EEEI) recognized AES and our Alamitos Battery Energy Storage System for launching the energy storage industry as we know it today. We proved that large-scale battery storage is a critical piece to integrating intermittent renewable energy to fulfill the promise of a 100% carbon-free future.


24/7 carbon-free energy is the new world-leading standard in sustainability

The next frontier in building a sustainable future is ensuring that carbon-free energy is the primary source for facilities, when and where they have load—100% carbon-free energy, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
